    Okay, are there any good books or web tutorials or experts who will come live with me until I figure out JavaScript?

    It seems to me that anyone who knows what they're doing with JS can achieve plenty of interactivity without ever resorting to Flash. I, however, don't even know what kind of tutorials I should be looking at to achieve the kind of effects I want.

    In my latest venture, I'm trying to create a rotating-disc slideshow that accepts both images and entire HTML files. I tried to pick apart an existing slideshow that behaves like a Carousel, but that was short-lived and frustrating.

    Does anyone here believe this feat can be accomplished with JavaScript alone? If so, what do I need to know, and where can I find it?

    Thanks ever so,

    Assenheimer

      Great, so I can just cut and paste yours then.

          Better idea:

          Why don't you tell me where I might learn how to do this?

            Ok, here is the approach:
            If you want to use more content than just images for slide show, do not rely on javascript to create it.
            As far as "sliding" part goes look at this: http://www.vladdy.net/Demos/ContentSlider.html

              Okay, so far this is exactly what I'm talking about. You've got entire webpages sliding in random transition here, correct? So what else did you use to do this besides JavaScript?

                  Okay, sorry. I had to change user permissions to open the Source.

                  So the next question is, how to make it slide in 2-D disc-rotation (like a Viewfinder) rather than linear? You say it's easy, but shy of asking you to explain it, do you know of any examples I could pick apart?

                  Thanks for all your help so far, little buddy.

                    I suppose when a block slides in you adjust the position of top left corner using an arc trajectory rather than linear slide...
