Thanks for your reply.
I have tried that method, which works fine but I have 100 images per 3d object and 15 3d objects to put into my little program, so I'm not relishing the thought of individually adding opacity to each image. however I will if that is the only way.
I also heard of a FW plugin that could import the png images as a sequence but heard it was too buggy.
I have also tried sprite sheets but it doesn't take large numbers of images easily.
My second query in all this is the mouse movement - I have found e.page x with jQuery that can allow for some mouse control, but it's just mouse move rather than click and drag- so I'm still investigating this. Also it applies to the whole stage rather than just the images in question.
Still quite stuck
I love all the interactivity that edge offers and I'm sure it must be possible or there is a tutorial out there- but haven't found the perfect one yet
Any more help would be greatly appreciated
You could easily achieve this 3D rotation effect using Sprite Sheets.
The best way to create sprite sheets for Edge Animate is Adobe Flash CC 2014.
Since you have 100+ images, you need multiple sprite sheets each having a max dimention of 1K x 1K pixels. (For making it mobile friendly)
Each sprite sheet needs to be imported as a separate symbol in Animate. These symbols needs to be instantiated one after another in the stage.
How import a PNG sequence as a symbol in Animate
Using Flash, create a symbol out of your PNG sequence -> Refer this
Using Flash, export the symbol as a sprite sheet -> Refer this
Using Animate , import the sprite sheet ( created by flash) as a symbol -> Refer this
Thank you Siva- that sounds perfect!
I'll try it straight away.
I expect the e.pageX jquery code will work great for the scrubbing fowards and reverse.
