Here's an effect solution for the ultimate 3D puzzle quest.

It solves the spacing issue Filip discovered in the font solution by Rorysee:

This solution isn't perfect either beause it uses only a single puzzle piece. This means that the borders can't be rendered correctly. I worked around this by simply not showing the borders :)

For the details read the description in the MEDIA > Change effect... dialog.

Realize that you are not limited to classic jigsaw puzzle shapes. Have fun experimenting!

I was with Rorysee today playing around with the different puzzle effects and he said Michiel is a clever guy and whats a bet he makes another effect to fix the problem. And here i am seeing this come true. Well done Michiel you're the best.

what am I doing wrong? I created the eps and loaded the effect,
but the puzzle comes to me white and I can not map the image

Take the FX Puzzle size down to about 0.0354

Good point. 0.0354 is pretty silly.

The properties FX PUZZLE SIZE and FX PUZZLE POSITION are now relative to the FX EPS SIZE prop. This is a much easier to use unit. Download the new version by clicking on the blue DOWNLOAD MEDIA FILES button.

Thank you all for the feedback!
