    Default 3D Spinning GIF

    I would really appreciate it if someone could spare some time to make me a spinning gif containing the following pictures.

    Hello Alex,

    We will be glad to help you learn to make the images spin for yourself but we will not do the work for you.

    Hi Alex, Have a look at my tutorial (click on the link in my signature below) to give you the principles of what you need to do. This will take you as far as having the same graphic on both sides.
    Bill Taylor's excellent tutorial will show you how to make what you want with a different graphic on each face.
    Come back and ask if you get stuck at any stage.
    Saludos,
    Bob.

    Hey guys, thanks alot. I think I might start using this forum, it seems like a nice place.

    I'll post the spinning gif here when I'm done so you can tell me what you think.

    Good work Alex. The only thing I would change would be a small tweak ti the light positions to stop the dark/light glare.

    I would say that it's a very good effort for your first attempt.
    Try experimenting with moving the lighting arrows to get rid of the very dark and light parts of the animation. (I see Keith beat me to it)

    Well done Alex.

    If you change the background colour to match the page where the animation will be displayed the dark 'jaggies' will go away.

    Thumbs up Re: 3D Spinning GIF

    Alex,

    Now that's something you can be proud of. A few tweaks to the lighting and background color as mentioned above and you'll be the talk of the geocache community for some time.

    Oh, and an enthusiastic welcome to TalkGraphics and the wonderful world of Xara Software, also!

    Bang up job,
    Harry
