This may sound strange. My company CUES inc. makes cameras for pipe inspection. One digital camera captures images and then thru software that internal video inside a pipe line is turned into a flat image.
I'm looking for someone that can create or provide me training "how to" to do this...
Take the flat pipe line image and show it becoming a cylinder... then show a camera view like its moving thru this pipeline. At the end, the cylinder will then split at the bottom and the image goes from a cylinder back to the flat image. We have a YouTube video if you look at the CUES DUC camera.. Www.youtube.com/cuesinc. This will give you an idea what I'm talking about.
We are glad to give credit on our new product video to the person that can help us. I really want to learn this proposed animation too. I've taken the flat image and placed on a cylinder in photoshop (that's the easy part) may question is how to show thru animation the flat image becoming a cylinder, etc
