    The cube looks like it can do 3d perspective on images, but I might be wrong.  Does telerik have any silverlight control that can do 3d perspective on images?

    Hi john west,

    Yes - we do not have 3d perspective on RadCube. Check-out the new RadCoverFlow control that supports 3D perspective for images.

    Find more info on the latest controls here:

    This is doing 3d-ish perspective on the images as part of the overall control, but I just want the perspective support as a helper method/control.  Basically, I want an enhanced imagecontrol that has perspective properties/transforms/whatever.  Any ideas?  Surely you guys know how to do it, since you've got it in this control.  I'd buy the whole suite just to get perspective.

    Hello john west,

    You can use a public class that is currently available with our RadCoverFlow control. However, there might be side effects when using this class (rotator) outside the CoverFlow concept:

    1. It is trying to put the middle bottom-most point of the image in the center of the screen. Hence, the camera movement is not moving the image itself.
    2. The reflection is working correctly only if you are not rotating the image arround the X or Z axis.
    Attached, please find a sample project demonstrating some transformations.

    Sincerely yours,
