View Full Version : site with 3d buttons

12 December 2002, 05:20 PM
please let me know what you think of the buttons I am creating for my new flash site. They do not take you anywhere but if you mouse over them, they will animate.

yes, i like them, too!
but me personally i would make the
animation (rotation) faster

.. from my point of view this would be
more dynamic ...

I like them too. I also think they should move a bit faster.

I found a problem with them though. If you mouse over on the edge, they will jitter backwards and forwards as they come into and out of mouseover state. You need to change their 'hit' area to a box surrounding them, because atm it is using their shape and this is why it jitters as the hit area moves around.

You've still got lots to do on the site, its looking great so far! keep up the good work.

the buttons are cool. i feel it would be more intuitive to have the hand cursor show when rolled over also.

they look really cool, but i'd rather not see them come as far around to the viewer. they sort of flatten out at the end and you lose the depth of it, it seems more like a 3d effect that goes into a 2d element (even tho its not). i'd stop the rotation 15 degrees or so earlier, maybe even have a slight "float" to them so that they're not completely still when the user is away from them. good stuff, looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Did you use Swift 3D to create them?

Whats up with the noise when you hit the "Process" link?
It didnt do anything and it just made noise.

the buttons are really cool, but i agree with everyone else they should be a lil faster. i like to make the buttons jitter, hehe. the sound on the buttons seems a lil loud to me, but that might just be me. the site looks good tho, its goin to be really nice when its finished.

i made the buttons quicker and changed to hand when rolling over them, i'm not sure if I like them all in a line, might scatter them a bit on the site
