Moving from a rotating sphere to a 2d rectange

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm clueless when it comes to this. I've got a sphere that rotates quite nicely, but now I'm after when the user hits a keyboard button that sphere stops rotating and flods out to become a 2d rectange. Any ideas?

It's simple to convert the sphere to a rectangle. Use an editing software (3DS max or Blender) and export the keyframes. In your program, you just interpolate between keyframes to have a smooth animation.

You could use a shader to do this pretty easily (depending on what "flods out" means).

ok - I'm going to put this project on hold for now, whilst I get on without other work. I think its a little 'out of my depth' and I feel like i must read and learn more of the basics first.

But thanks for all your replies :-)
