    Rotating / Twisting text effect?

    I've got a client who has a simple two-button nav. They want for the text of the links to "rotate" on one axis (about 30deg) when rolled over. Does anyone have a quick AS I could review for this text effect?

    Thanks Much

    PS - In order to illustrate what I'm asking, I have decided to expose you all to my horrific hand-drawing of 3d text, the attached graphic shows what we are trying to accomplish. Thanks.

    I do not think you could accompish that with action script...if you could..i would definitely check back and read up on how to!

    I would imagine that you would have to draw the text in it's various degree and animate them on rollover with action script...but i don't think AS can generate the rotation and depth perspective..

    Well, you can send skew and other distortions to the objects through XML, I doubt it can actually render the text but right now I'd settle for skewing / distoring the text.
