That doesn't look like Swift3D to me, looks more like faked 3D using
Flash transforms or some other tool - but Swift3D does not do fancy
morphing of vector shapes like that.

Hello everyone,

There is a great flash site that I absolutely love, and just
wanted your opinion on how they layed it out.

The site is :
http://checklandkindleysides.com

They use a background gradient image, so is the flash movie
in transparent mode??
Or perhaps they have used another program for 3D, for example
I read somewhere that Swift 3D is great for this kind of work.
They also use CSS on the nav text, have they integrated html
with flash??

Cheers,

Vlado

 Unfortunately if you haven't learned it by now you'll never be able to
 understand its full potential.


??! What? Come on, it's not exactly rocket science is it, and everyone
has to start somewhere, don't they? Kinda arrogant to suggest that if
you haven't already learned somehting you will never be able to.
Especially anything to do with Flash.

yeh that's an import from a bitmap 3d render with flash overlayed

very nicely done tho

swift 3d is more for doing vector-based 3d work like this http:// 
64.207.133.120/Erain/extreme/02/visions.asp although it does have  
limited bitmap mapping

Peter, to my own detriment, I've found that sarcasm doesn't translate so
well into ones and zeros :)
I was also initially rather taken aback by Jesse's comment but, much to the
credit of the people on this list, I've never seen that kind of elitism here
so figured it must be sarcastic.

Anyway, I'll get off the OT conversation now. Good weekends all.

Hi Peter,
I understood Jesse's comment to be a follow on to his sarcastic reference to
'magic' and he is in fact insinuating that it's simpler than it looks and
therefore, yes, anyone interested enough can learn how to do it. I don't
think he meant any offense.

If I'm not mistaken he's alluding to the fact that this site is an example
of where the individual parts are actual pretty simple but, put together as
they have been, the finished piece appears to be greater than the sum of
those parts - like magic.

I'm not sure how this was created but after looking at the home animation
(the tree with the leaves falling) I can say that the animation can be done
simply with shape tweens. and yes the gradient in the background can be
controlled with CSS and a transparent movie or it can be controlled within
flash itself.

Hi Dave,

Depends on what you mean by integrate.  Maya has a vector renderer (the
same one that Swift3D has, it's made by Electric Rain), but for this, it
looks more like a bitmap sequence or even a movie.  So in a sense, yeah.

Hi,

   There was a blog article on this - search in Google or something, I 
think they rendered all the animations out from 3D, but that's all I can 
remember.


   Bit arrogant that it won't run and complains about my screen 
resolution not being 1024 x 768 - dur, it is but Firefox is running with 
tabs open - although they are designers so we may be able to forgive 
their ignorance of coders who squeeze their machines for years after the 
upgrade by dates :)
