    Hi All
    Please take a look at the simple animation below.
    Note that it really doesn't spin all the way around.
    It spins to 180 degrees and then starts again giving the appearance of spinning 360 degrees.



    But it don't look right!
    My question is, How do i get it to spin all the way around correctly?
    I'm using Xara 5 and have tried using the step feature but it only seems to work for the texture on the button and not for the object itself.

    That's just too easy.
    I did read it and specifically looked for my answer and didn't find it.
    Thank you very much!

    Well I tried it, but whenever I choose a button instead of lettering the option to uncheck "show frontface only" is taken away.

    Look at this.

    Note that the option box has dimmed and you can't uncheck it.

    It only lets me uncheck it when choosing lettering and not with a button.

    Kind of an offhand question, but, speaking of Xara3D... Take a look at my sig, notice how the background is white and not clear? How can i change this... i've looked under background settings and can't come up with an answer.

    First Uncheck the shadow option, then click file, then click export animation, then select the file name/outout folder and file type, then click save, then check the transparent box, and save.....

    That didn't work.
    I have Rotate 1a,1b,1c and none of them changed it a bit.
    Xara just can't do it, period!
    Unless someone can show me that they've accomplished this with Xara?

    @nizers
    Yeah, get rid of the shadow, but I don't think thats your prob.
    Right click and choose select background or texture then choose a white color or a white texture.
    If you don't want anything in the background then check the box that say's "transparent" when you save it.

    I don't think it was the shadow either... but i got rid of it anyways. I never could select that transparent box before but i figured it out. It's cause i didn't have the dithered box selected. THX
