View Full Version : Page flip - Back of page image?

02 February 2010, 12:45 AM
Howdy folks. I have a comp that I created to animate a page turn - it's a stiff card, not a curl. So I have 3D set on for the layer that shows the cover of the book, I set the anchor point to the left side and I keyframe the cover opening up by rotating. This all works fine. But when the page turns, the back of the page is a mirror of the front of the page. What is the best way to create a backside of the page so that when it turns, it will show this backside image instead of the mirror of the front? I have an image already to use for this backside of the cover. Just not sure how to implement this.

Try duplicating the image, move it back by a small number on the z axis, rotate 180 degrees to face backwards, and parent it to the original.

Thanks a ton. Parenting it was the key!
