Trying to create a 2 sided 3d object

Maritime Posts: 4 Just Starting Out*

Im not referring to an object like a cube but more of 3d object that is like paper. I'm trying to keyframe the object to spin but make the other side different from what the side you normally see instead of having it mirrored. If there is a way to do this I would like to know.

    Bring in an image what what you want the paper to look like into one layer - crop/size to taste.  Bring in the "backside" image as another layer - use the same crop/size settings.  Create a point layer and make it and the image layers 3D.  Parent the image layers to the point and then rotate the point.  You might have to re-arrange the image layers so that what you consider the top layer to be over the backside layer in the layer stack.

    I just forgot to include the point layer allowing me to control both images.
