nope only you :D

hehe kidding. That's a nice example
I would probably make an animation of the turning page.
As it's always the same (would be a bit heavy though)

Maybe it could be done by horizontal stretching of a vertically stretched 1px height sprite gradient starting from width = 0 to width = pageWidth during the horizontal movement.
Also scaling up height a bit and then down for faking perspective.

For the rest it's just some frame on corresponding thumbnail and some fading effects

yep I meant exactly animated frames
stretch is what id done when you set width and/or height to values that aren't the original imagesize of the sprite

Like a basic drag&drop but you have to set the animation frame according to the position of the mouse (:

I dont believe this is a good way. If you have a book with many pages it will be a really huge project. And it is a lot of work to make these animations. If a page has to be edited, you have to make the whole animation again.

In the example of your first post the animation is always the same. Thats the trick. A blank page is turned.

yeah but animation of pages is not problem, problem might be a size of project when i create a lot of high res pages.
Pages cant be edited witch changing only sprite, sorry its only way I could do it ;/ but I think that it can be also in some other way;)
