    Hi everyone.

    Im trying to build a presentation in Swish showing a 3d grid as a background. There is no problem with that (you can do that in Photoshop). The problem is I would like to animate it, you know, like those high-tech-looking websites. Can i accomplish that in swift 3d or any other application like max? Then i would need to export it.

    Hope i was clear enough.

    A great deal depends on your ability.
    Most 3d Swf content is vector (vectra, swift3d, envector)
    as the 3d content generally doesn't attach itself to actions
    On press go to url/go to frame.
    You would need to either import as a sprite or
    use a load movie (into sprite)create an invisible object over the sprite assign those actions to a invisible shape over the object.

    As well if there was any button animation within the loaded movie you would need to direct it's action via tell target of the invisible object that shared all but it's z layer.
    The reason being events on a sprite cannot affect actions within them.

    As for editing with 2D image programs well your gonna have to do a lot of editing and I doubt it will come out as intended.
