I found a site called Trend Applications, and was wondering if anybody knows how the following graphic was rotated via Flash?

The rest of the site looks great as well!

No, it wasn't.  They're using a series of JPG images that have been imported and playing back in a stop-frame animation style using Flash.

When I said no it wasn't, I meant it wasn't rotated using Flash, it just uses Flash to play back the images, like an animated GIF.

yep, flash can display animated gif's or a secuence of jpegs or about any other format it recognizes...

Flash does not do traditional 3d, it does have some neat visual effects that can be achieved with extensive actionscript programing though...

There are lightwiegt programs that cater to rendering 3d for flash, mostly though people use somthing like Lightwave, 3ds max or maya to render say a png sequence with alpha... then import these frames into thier flash movie.

Like the other guys said. it wasn't created in flash directly.

A good 3d program for flash is Swift 3d (http://www.erain.com/) you can export to flash.

Also they do a more limited version of this as a plugin for flash called swift 3d Xpress
