for example i need the mug to rotate 360 degrees with an image that wraps around but i need to be able to change the image quickly and easily.
any help is defenatley appreciated
While Flash is an excellent animation program, it is not always the best tool for the job. Flash is a vector art program meaning that it is limited to 2D only. This helps reduce overall file size and allows Flash to produce small files which are perfect for web distribution. With Actionscript, you can create a z-axis and simulate 3D but it requires a good bit of code and is not really how the program was intended to be used. There are numerous 3D applications available that would be more suited to something like this. You could create the 3D graphic is something like Swish, Webtricity, Daz 3D studio, Electric Rain,3D Studio Max, or numerous other 3D programs and output it in a video format such as .avi that could then be imported into Flash.
One other option might be to use a flat image and a mask. You can create two layers and make text or objects appear to be rotating around a fixed point with a mask.
hope it helps

3D in Flash its not so hard. For example I made rotating mug like you are looking for. Go here http://mugtime.co.uk/category.php?cid=1&nav=1 and click preview below any image.

This looks just what im looking for, how do you chnage the image on the mug are they individually put into flash or dynamically added?
oh p.s. do you think i could have a play with this mug?

Images add dynamically, through FlashVars. You can play with your own images on the site here http://mugtime.co.uk/own_photo.php :)

I think you can try to do it yourself :) I sell this mug $60 per license. License means that swf file loads images only from one site.

What ever happend to flashers helping out each other but oh well thats upto you....
I may have to buy a license then, ill have a think

Ok i have spoken to my friend who wants the mug and he asked if he pays for a license can he use it on his website and his ebay page?

Yes, of cause. He can embed swf file anywhere. He should just put images on one site and flash file will load images only from it.

So how do i go about buying it then?

Number 1: Those mugs aren't 3d. They are 2d.
Number 2: Go and read.
