Hi all,

On the corner of my site I have a ribbon, I thought when the page loads it would be cool to have the ribbon fall from top to bottom like a ribbon really would, just not sure the best way to achieve that effect, anyone seen anything like this before? I've attached the image of the ribbon if that helps...

Nice link Medyman.

If you don't want to deal with the 3D aspects (eclipse is a hairy beast for sure!) you might just think about a couple masks and some frame by frame animation.

If you need an example just ask :D

Hey Blizzard! Could I get an example? :) That would be great! Would it help if I actually sent you the ribbon I designed? It's only a Fireworks file though...

Sure, go ahead and attach it, I will snag it when I get to this example :)
