I got bored, so I tried to create a
3d Spiral Stair Case looping animation
just for grins and chuckles LOL
...anyway, just uploaded an update.
Tried to make it a bit more realistic.
This isn't a scripted animation. I used the good 'ol 3d spin fx from the core effects
in swishmax and did all the animation in the settings of each of the 30 parts
....ok, so I had some time on my hands. At least the world has another useless spinning flash animation
One thing I never realized before about the 3d spin, is that the x, y, z spin on the first 3D spin pannel isn't a real spin.
Rather than actually spinning the movieclip, or group and allowing me to see the actual back of the movieclip/group, it's actually a mirror image of the movieclip/group I am seeing.
So, for this animation I needed to fake it, and just make it look like we are seeing the backside of the movieclip.
I wonder what, if anything can be done about that backside of the movieclip thing, so we can see the real backside of the movieclip/group?
Thanks in advance.
