hi, i am making an interactive cd-rom in director and the buttons i am trying to use are almost the same as this:

http://www.voidix.com/glassorb.html

i think the actuall orb looks great as the button in an untouched state, but i would need to create a rollover state and a pressed down state...

how would you do this for best results?

cheers

You are practically asking someone to design a down state for your button. You need to actually think up a way to do it yourself. You may have done a tutorial for glass orb creation but obviously the most important lesson didn't wear off. A tutorial is only meant as a guide / demonstration to a technique. It is now up to you to explore and come up with your own design of a button down state.

The most simple way that I can think of in this case is maybe just to change the yellowish color of the default button ...

You can also add some more greater visible shadows or edges or stuff like that so it looks like it was pushed down ...

But Ian Jones is right ... now, after doing the voidx tutorial, you have a clue to do stuff like this and from that starting point you have to switch on your imagination or whatever I should call it an "develop your own button" ...
