Looks cool. Hey,....I've never used Blender before and quite frankly 3D scares the B-Geezus out of me! I have been tasked to create a Cylinder that has 5 labels wrapped around it (all saying something different) and then have the cylinder spin slowly so that they can all be seen and read at some point during the spin add to that agonizing feat,..they'd like me to have the cylinder then uncoil itself to become a linear rectangle that shows the 5 labels in sequence. Can Blender be used for this or should I just tell those people FORGET it,...I don't do 3D!!!!?

Yes, Blender can definitely be used for that. However, it's not something for an absolute beginner in any 3D application.

If you still get tasked to do it, you could join the BlenderNewbies forums and get some guidance.

Thanks...I'm afraid it looks like I'm going to have to do this....Will Blender export out as an animated gif? Problem is,..this has to animate and play in PowerPoint. i can embed a gif or a .swf file in there,...but gifs tend to be easier although grainy at times. Know too that I'm totally understanding that some work and planning goes into many of these animations and so many people think,..hey I just want to slap up a shape and have the program do the rest. What that usually results in is a less than exciting (Cookie cutter) looking work. So I'm up for the lessons if Blender is up to the task! I will join this weekend.
