Gogogic was recently asked to implement a coverflow like micro site (head banner) for a client. The implementation needed to be very smooth, very light weight and highly customizable, because the client wants to be able to change images easily.
We took a good look at what was already out there but basically we didn’t find anything adequate in terms of quality and customization. We finally decided to build our very own coverflow application from scratch because – in the end – it would be more cost efficient than to find a 3rd party control and customize it.
A lot of Flash cover flow implementations are based on Papervision, which is an excellent product, but is sometimes misused a little. We felt that creating cover flow functionality with Papervision would be like shooting a mouse with a cannon – a little misguided. The result is also usually a loss in smooth motions and some tortured scaling.
