Shape 3D plugin

Recommended Posts

The following cube with six pictures is my first, but, having problems with 2nd....

ColtCube92.gif

After I import six pictures, flatten and open the Shape 3D plugin, it defaults to the Sphere tab, I click on

Box tab, Cube Map is highlighted, click on Dice Map and pointer falls to Full Sphere Map and seems to mess up everything.

I finally get back to Dice Map and try to rotate the cube and can only see my front and right side picture. It will not show me

the back, bottom, barely see top and other side. I've tried deleting, extracting and dragging Shape 3D dll back into Effects but with no luck.

I've tried many different combinations but the cube will not hold together nor rotate for me.

My first try was smooth and no problems. Could I be having a problem because it's my second try?

I really like this tut and please help me with my problem.

What do you mean? The mouse pointer jumps and select Full sphere map?

And Shape3d worked fine before?

When you say it will not show you some sides, do you mean it's blank? black? transparent?

Or do you mean you can't rotate to those sides so you can see them?

Ash, thanks for replying to my Shape 3D topic.

A. (1) I click on Box tab, then Cube Map is highlighted in blue

(2) then left click on Dice Map, then next I see Full Sphere Map highlighted in blue and cube moves

without me clicking on the Full Sphere Map.

(3) then move mouse pointer back to Dice Map and click on it...cube moves.

B. Shape 3D worked great the first time...no problems.

C. Six pictures were imported, one on each area.

D. Front view is good. Well, I can rotate but only see part of top and right side.

Partial rotate and see only part of the left and rear which are blank, black and some white.

Cannot rotate to bottom at all.

E. Could there be a problem with the picture type?

Below is the cube I'm working with now.....

Few things to try if you haven't already.

Do you remember if you've installed any thing new between the time shape3d worked and not.

Check and clean your system of any virus, spyware, junk and such.

Keep you drivers updated.

And/or

In shape3d, on the bottom, settings --> Delete default.

Delete Shape3d's dll file.

Download Shape3d again.

And/or

Back up your effect folder.

uninstall Paint.NET.

Reinstall everything.

Including .NET framework.

Ash, thanks for your instructions and time. Finally I got this hard head of mine

screwed back on and found my problem. After making settings for the first cube,

saving it to .Gif file, I was going back to the original cube and trying to rotate it.

Solution was going back to "Flatten", Effects>Render>Shape3D and plugin remembered

the last setting so I was able to rotate and save each time to a different .Gif file creating

the animation. I was able to see all six pictures by going through the above loop/scenario.

Here's the results....

Save your image which you had before you made the first cube with shape3D. Then save this. Now open the image you have saved before applying S3D and run S3D on it, but this time rotate it to your liking.

You can't rotate the picture of the cube you have already done by using Shape3D a second time.

Hopefully you understand me
