It shouldn't be too difficult. Slice up the images and then make MCs out of
them and name them in a series like mca1, mca2, etc., mcb1, mcb2, etc. This way
you can manipulate them with a loop more easily, i.e. Tell Target "mca" &
mcnum, and then set mcnum = mcnum + 1. The code's much more efficient if you're
in F5.

Then if you look at Yugo's twisted sculpture you'll notice that it's really
only changing the x-scales of the adjacent MCs in unison, and adjusting the
brightness to simulate lighting. It's a VERY well-done illusion that makes it
look 3D, but there is no complex 3D math or Z-axis simulation going on.

So to 'rotate' a new image in, have your non-timeline-based loop (to easily
control all the MCs of an image) within a timeline-based loop that controls,
gradually, the simulated rotation. Add the same amount of x-scale to the new
image MCs (that start out at 0) as you subtract from the image MCs that are
rotating out. Play with the brightnesses...season to taste.
