I would like to be able to spin a playing card around and reveal what is on the other side - is there a transition to do this easily? I looked through the stock ones and couldn't see anything that might get this look. Thanks

You can just put another layer on the other side of your main layer using AE's 3d space. Parent the back side to the front side.

Or use Card Wipe.

I have tried both with no success. After searching, I found cardwipe and tried that, but there is nothing to indicate what the back of the flipped card will be in the plug-in - or if it is there - it is not working for me.

As for Z space, I have tried that too. I created a layer (L1), rotated it 180 degrees on the 7 axis. Then I duplicated the layer and moved the 2nd layer (L2) on the Z axis -1 and 1 (at different times). I put a ramp on the layer to make it different BUT when I check the rotation, it does not seem to work and it is the same on both sides.

Did you remember to separate the two card surfaces a little bit in z-space, so the two sides aren't trying to occupy the same space at the same time?

Yes I did. Here is the issue I am seeing. First off, I parented the card to the other layer - that helped. The other issue is that I cannot use a small number like .01 because it looks good when the card is fully turned, but about it doesn't show until the turn is complete. I have used a bigger number like 1-2 pixels in Z space for this to work. This goes against the tutorials I have seen that don't seem to need this much pixel room, but for me it looks like I do.

Here you go. Have a look at these two comps.
