  1. Hi Shawn,

    I am looking to build something that could accept different text and jpg images from a web page and put them into a short (2-5 seconds) animated scene loosely based on the image
    (the images will become photos in the scene and the text will become the writing on the cards).

    The scene would then need to be playable , with minimum delay, from the site where text/images were submitted (preferably with jwplayer).

    The scene would have zoom/’fly over’animation to transition from one photo to the other. This animation would always be the same, however the photo images, and text, would be different.

    An additional feature of being able to select different backgrounds (other than the country field) would also be nice to have – the photos/pegs/clips/wire would remain the same.

    Any advice you could offer would be much appreciated.

    The closest I have got to a solution so far is
