Does anyone know where to begin on this type of sideshow or know of a good tut on how to build it without paying the $100 for the component?  Example: http://www.flashcomponents.net/upload/samples/776/index.html?full=true

...and really all I need is the ability to scroll the images and have them "bend".  I have built simple scrolling sideshows but Im not sure how to add in the needed math to give the appearance of a rounded surface...

Any suggestions? -besides the obvious buy the component...

Thanks!

Yea I agree...  Do you by chance know how to make the plane or the overall circle rotation wider as to make the images not quite so big as they trail off of the page.  IE start at 80 x 60 and grow to only 100 x 80 when rotated...
