Hi, All,

I wanted to create rolling discs with a photo on it and have it roll onto the t.v. screen like in those exercise (P 90 X) infomercials on late night television. Does anyone know of a rule of thumb, guideline, manual or video tutorial on the subject?

Thanks for your help.

What are you having difficulty with?
To get rolling discs, you would create disc images in Photoshop (front and back), place them in your scene, parent one end to the other, and then animate the position and rotation of the disc layers.

If you wanted to have a bit more fun, you could add a reflection layer to the disc shape and have it set to do everything except for rotate on its z axis.
