COMPETITION ENDED !

Congratulations to Kontramax for this winning entry:

Well done to everyone that had a ago, we had a whole bunch of great gifs. I decided to go with Kontramax’s leaf as I felt it looked the best when in use. Go to the homepage now to see it in action! :)

Kontramax, enjoy your 50 credits and new badge!

==============

G’day forum folk!

I’m running a small competition to generate a rotating Envato leaf for a top secret feature :zipped: I’m working on… and, well… I’ve no idea how to do this and both Stuart (frontend UI dev) and Rodney (graphic designer) have now left the office for the weekend :impatient:

This may be a small competition, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great one. Like all Envato competitions we have a prize for the winner. The winner will receive 50 Marketplace Credits :ohrly: and a Forum Superstar badge :shocked: (the silver one)!

Contenders, this is your challange:

Download leaf.eps.zip and produce an animated GIF 64×64 pixels with the leaf rotating around the Y axis (imagine a car on a rotating platform). You will need to provide the source file along with the generated GIF so I can make tweaks if needed.

I will announce the winner on Monday… or until someone submits something awesome enough ;)

Nope, a GIF . The EPS contains just the leaf right? I don’t have Illustrator, Collis chopped it up for me.

It needs to “just work” for all visitors to the marketplace, so while CSS3 or JavaScript and SVG /VML is way more fun, there are compatibility issues with older browsers.

Cool, but its rotating the wrong way.. imagine the leaf rotating so you see it side on, the back, side on and then the front again.

http://dtbaker.com.au/webimages/leaf2.xcf low quality gimp attempt. ~28 frames.

i’d recommend wacking it into a 3d program, applying a nice shadow as it spins, exporting a gif

Hello Ian

Here is mine.

I can make it more smooth, if file size is not an issue. Hope you like it. :)
