    Rotate in 3D

    Yurosis09

      Hi,

       

      I'm a beginner to Flash and would like to ask for directions to get started with what I'm trying to achieve.

       

      I've got a 3D model at hand, which I have imported as a movie and an image sequence of each frame depending on which is necessary. I basically would want to rotate it by 360 degree both on the x and y axis on a canvas as well as having that done manually, such as having to drag my mouse to control which direction the model rotates in. Can I do this in Flash?

       

      Help is very much appreciated.

       

      Thanks!

          flash can rotate 2d objects in 3d space.  if you have a 3d object that you want to rotate in 3d space flash can do that but you'll probably want to use a mature framework like papervision 3d.

            Hello,

             

            I've downloaded Papervision 3D but am having some trouble with integrating it into Flash Pro CS5 as described by the installation guide that came with the download. That aside I have not a clue how to start with Papervision 3D or Flash after importing the movie or frames.

              if you're comfortable with actionscript you should be able to use the sample files to get your project going.  if you're a novice actionscripter this will be a major challenge.

                I'd have to say I'm a novice at scripting.

                 

                Are there any other approaches I can take then? All I really need is the rotation to be manually controlled and for it to rotate 360 degrees on the x and y axis.

                  if you have a sequence of flat images that can be distributed along a movieclip timeline, you can animate your object by controlling the timeline.
