Flip effect

Post by jap »

Hello,
Is there a way to make a flip like this http://cocoaconvert.net/tag/core-animation/ with Hollywood?
The Hollywood Guide's DisplayTransitionFX section didn't mention a flip effect and I was wondering if there is some other way to do that.

No, that's not possible. This transition uses 3D transformations which Hollywood currently can't do. Hollywood can only do 2D affine transformations using TransformBrush() but no 3D projections.

This is interesting: http://jfxstudio.wordpress.com/2009/02/ ... transform/. Combining that with a horizontal scaling and the result may be quite close to the flip effect.

Is the JavaFX's transformation something that Hollywood cannot do at the moment (a 3D effect)?

Yes, perspective transformations (like the one shown in your link) are currently not possible. You can only do 2D transformations with Hollywood, i.e. only on the x- and y-axis. The one shown in your link also transforms the image on the z-axis, creating a 3D effect.

3D effects would be cool. Any chance to see a 3D transformation function in the future Hollywood version?
