360 object expanded to enable top/bottom views

Not sure how else to title this question.... but would it be possible to expand the function of the object feature so that you can "move" the object to look at the top / bottom of the item?

Right now, the object structure enables you to spin an object around it's y-axis. How about adding the ability to spin around it's x-axis as well?

I figured out how to do this a long time ago using Demicron's wirefusion and a grid of images... but I'm too lazy to go and find my notes (several years ago)... so let's think out loud about this... ;-) ... and try to keep it within the boundaries of the existing "frame" structure...

If I just want to spin around the y-axis, then my frames may be:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

but let's spin up / down a couple of degrees and we end up with a frame grid that looks like...

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
31 32 33 34 35 35 37 38 39 40
41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50

Hmmm... it's getting late... but I can start to see how this could be implemented in the XML structure with some basic math functions... but I'll have to come back after I find my previous notes.

Or, Klaus and the magic fairies could just "spin" this into a future release automagically... *g*

Side note... since the multi-frame panos utilize the same structure, I could see someone taking a buttload of panos at a place in a grid format like this, and then enabling people to "walk around" a place using the arrows on the keyboard.

I'll have to come back to this later.

Steve,

That definitely helps. I tried some various searches and just didn't get the right combination.

Thank you very much. *thumbsup*
