Problem making animation of opening a book
on Jun 9, 2010 at 5:25:32 pm


I'm making a book that opens to show the first page, so far so good but I can't work out how to have the inside of the book cover show something other than the reverse of the outside cover as it hinges open. I've tried to copy the book cover layer then replace the layer content with what I want to appear on the rear of the cover, I've also tried the pickwhip to make the new inside cover follow the cover layer. The layers are all 3D and even though the inside cover layer is below the cover layer it appears on top of it. I've tried moving the inside cover layer in Z position to put it just behind the cover but nothing seems to work, any ideas how to achieve this would be much appreciated.

ive used a quick workaround in the past where I animate the pages content to switch precisely at the moment the page is not readable at the midpoint. Just an idea as well..
