NextPreviousHomeAdvice on scrolling a picture

sfwriter | 6 years ago | 4 comments | 1,198 views

I want to create an object similar to the image I attached here. The catch is I want the pictures, ten to fifteen in total, to scroll smoothly right to left as the whole image floats around the screen. I only want the pictures to scroll, not the blue border or the right arrow. I also want the outer sides of the blue border to have a reflective texture.

I know I can do it by making an animated gif but the resolution of the pictures would suffer badly.

I guess I could make a model of the three components and attach the line of pictures as a texture to the middle piece and then animate that. The problem is, I've never made a model before and not sure how. I have Corel MotionStudio 3D, which though not a very robust program, will probably suffice in this case.

I tried bringing the components in as EPS layers but it doesn't seem to look right. Admittedly, I may be doing it wrong.

I hope I explained my needs clearly. There are several components of various size and shapes I will need to perform the same task on.

Any advice on how to proceed will be greatly appreciated.

I think I would apply the compositions\ReflectiveFloor_ReflectionMap.fx effect and set the FX TEXTURE SPEED property to about 0.1

Thanks for the reply but I don't understand what you mean.

Apply the fx to what?

How should I bring it in? Model? EPS Layer? Something else?

You can create a picture layer by choosing the menu item LAYER > ADD LAYER > ADD PICTURE LAYER...

After that you can apply the compositions\ReflectiveFloor_ReflectionMap.fx effect effect by choosing the menu item MEDIA > CHANGE EFFECT

After that you can make it scroll by setting the FX TEXTURE SPEED property to about 0.1. You can select this property with the dropdown above the 3 sliders. You can change the property itself with the 3 sliders.

I see how that makes the pictures scroll. However, the area the pictures will be only show five pictures at a time. I want it to scroll through about ten to fifteen pictures. How do I add a picture layer where it won't show all the pictures at once, only five, but as it scrolls the other pictures come into view?
