creating depth...take 2
Posted: 07 Oct 2005 12:10 AM
Another attempt...another thread.
No beveled frame yet, but the windows move
and it's a finally a real transition. It would be
oh so much better if the shadows moved.

take2

Here is the XML and PNG image, if anyone is interested.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">

Ooops...and I forgot to credit Hitthebongo for his numbers.
Thought I better mention that before he watches and says...."wait a minute!!"

Ah ''The Alien glow numbers (Thank the heavens for one click little plugins called "Alien Glow")

That "creating depth" effect looks very swish. Top drawer.

I wouldn't be concerned about the shadows. I never noticed them being static on the first run. It was only on subsequent runs and deliberately looking for the discrepancy that I noticed. I think the effect suceeds in tricking the brain in to thinking the shadows are moving.

Talking of optical illusions:

Red text on a black background as viewed on a monitor - when I see it it looks like it's floating in front of the screen - anyone else ever notice that ?
