    How did they do this?

    Does anyone know how they achieved the transitions between pages, with the cube rolling???

    Hi,
    Such an effect can be achieved by creating a 3D object using software like Swift 3D and importing it in Flash. Doing this breaks the imported swf into frames, then you can put a stop(); action in those frames where the animation (cube rotation) ends, and control the movie like wise. For example if you have you links like Home, About Us etc. then for each sections you can use the following action:

    on(release){

    _root.cube.gotoAndPlay("Rotation");

    if(_root.cube.currentFrame == 20) {<-- or the frame no where the animation stops

    myMC.loadMovie("Home.swf"); <-- myMC can be an empty movie clip set for this purpose
    }
    }

    Its something rough i could think about at the moment. Will think more about it probably in the weekend.
    Good Luck!
