Before reading.. go to www.derbauer.de

Now . .if ANY ONE knows how they trick flash like that.. ( to get the liquid chrome effect ) I would like to know.

And Tony.. I ask a small favor of you.. I have gotten in contact with the site manager or w/e.. and I got a reply saying that they do not give out programming techniques ( probably to the public )
The favor is .. could u please try to get in contact with them through their site and since u own a popular web site. Maybe they will give you some info..

That effect can be easily duplicated in PS. Since the animated portions of the image are pretty small, you could probably import them into flash without degrading the image quality too much to keep the file size low.

However, I'm willing to bet that particular effect was originally created in a 3D imaging program like Catalyst suggested. It would be easier to make each frame that way.


If you are really interested I could write a small PS tutorial on how to make a simple chrome effect (very easy). However, your on your own for the animation part. Wink

Are you talking about the animation or the image? The image will be perfectly smooth. The animation can be equally smooth but the file size would be ridiculous.

I was talking about creating the image in PS then animating it in flash.

image in PS will be good, but when you try to do what those guys did on the site, i hardly think you will get the same results ;D

Obviously , that's what I have been saying
I can pull that pic out of my a** but I cant make that animation as nice and smooth as they did, that's why they have their own web site and do what they do,
