Mir de beer2D layer in 3D

Hi everyone, I hope you can help me out with this;

I want to make a spinning chair like in the tv program "the voice of holland". I have a front and a back chair that I linked and made 3d layers. The spinning works but in the middle of the spin it's just flat. How can I make this look like it's 3d? Or make that flat side not that visible?

Thanks so much!

In order to get the depth of the chair, you need a 3D chair and not just two 2D layers placed in 3D space. You'll want to model, texture & animate a chair in a 3D application like C4D.

If you're not familiar with a 3d app, you could try to build an approximation of the chair from 2d cards. It will look pretty angular, but if you will end up on the front side after a quick turn, you may get away with it.
