You can create a nice menu for your game or application with this MMF2 widget easily, without any extensions. The buttons are placed in a virtual 3D area and they're moving around a circle. You can also customize your menu using the object's alterable values and strings. The widget is initally an Active and a String object.
This is the new version of the open source Easy3D engine for Multimedia Fusion 2 . To create a 3D menu, follow the instructions in the Widget.

3D menu Widget (mfa file):
3D menu Widget example (mfa file):
The main download file is the stand-alone application of the example file.

EDIT: Version 1.1 is available!
New features:
- Set input device: you can control the muenu now also with buttons.
- Always show front side: if this value is "no", the buttons will be automatically turned around the circle.

Nice! But my biggest question is... how did you get the motion blur on the "Always on the move" menu? It looks AMAZING.
Posted by Simon Czentnár 15th November, 2008

Do you mean the effect when you move the mouse over the green button? I made it using the application called Irfan View because it was currently the fastest way to whirl an image. Then I pasted it into the animation editor of MMF2 and the alpha channel cut the non-important parts of the image.
Or do you mean something other?...

I was going to make something like this
Anyway, looks really good and far better than I could have done it. I give you 5 shiny stars for your effort, sir.

There's a bug for me on the always on the move one. When I try to go back on it after the main example menu it wont work properly?
Posted by Simon Czentnár 15th November, 2008

It should go back to the main menu, but there could be a mistake, of course. I will correct it.
Thanks for the notice, Adam!

But i didn't fully understand the gray effect thing...
It was really flashy, and if used properly, could make a game look more professional.

5 stars to you!

Very cool. Someone could make a 3d game out of the tree of Darkness I think. It could work like the Zelda lock on or the Big Goomba boss on SM64.

An interesting effect!
Well done. Wish I could sneak a peek at the code...

I've uploaded the corrected example file, use the original link.

Zatek - yes, the gray effect does not make anything else... I just wanted to show that it can be used as a simple background-effect in the application.

Thanks for the comments, again!
