    Youtube Ethereal

    Originally supposed to be a 3D line animation but not possible.
    Sorry the resolution is quite low.

    Default Higher resolution video

    A little better. Again, not possible as an Xara flash file.

    Unhappy original 3D ribbon

    See the link below for the 3D version which I wanted to animate. It won't work in flash or as a movie.

    Hi,

    Wrong link, it goes to a very old thread about the ribbon banner.

    Beautiful look!

    How are you making the drawing? Are you animating a brush or lines/curves? I have had a lot of trouble trying to animate brush strokes.
    Can you give us some screen shots of Xara with the animation opened?

    BTW, if you have Magix Movie Edit Pro or VPX, you can open Xara animator from the video program with the video in the background. The Xara animation goes back to the video program timeline as a Xar object or Xar animation with transparency. It can be reopened for further refinement.

    Love the hairline text against the deep red background.

    Thanks Gary, even though Youtube seemed to mess up the hairline somewhat.

    Thanks John.
    The link is correct, it shows how the the red hair-line graphic is supposed to be, ie. 3D but alas the Xara movie renderer won't accept it.

    Here is the file:
    fabric3.xar
    WARNING! Play preview of this animation at your own risk. For me it (and previous blend animations) just keeps looping and is impossible to stop. So instead of previewing it, I just export it as a movie (video file).

    .
    I usually animate brush strokes (which won't work in flash files) but this one uses standard lines (which also won't work in flash because I have altered the shape of the line too much for it to render).

    My [blend] on a [curve] uses two lines following a curve line. Normally the renderer will mess up the animation as some of the blended lines are far too similar and I guess it gets confused as to which line is which. To solve this problem, I just add another [node] to one of the original two lines. This ensures that all the other lines in-between (blended lines) are all unique so no confusion takes place. So my example uses one line with 2 nodes while the other has an added node in the middle.
