Can this be done using AE5.5 Standard Version?

I want to simulate a device (such as an IPAQ) starting a long way from the
camera and twisting is it comes nearer the camera - this bit I can do.

My question is two fold. Firstly, can I give the object thickness (I think
this may be possible).

If the above is possibility, can I give the edges which make up the
"thickness" any graphic detail such as ribbing etc?

If I were to put any detail on the front of the graphic (such as buttons)
could I give them any 3 detail?

Many thanks for helping me start off with this.

Some really clever people manage to do some pretty amazing stuff
with very little, so I can't say it is impossible, but AE Standard has no
3D capabilities, and even though the Professional Bundle does have
limited 3D capabilities, I don't recall anything about thickness, and
seriously doubt that there will be any options for edge detail.

There is a plugin from Zaxwerks http://www.zaxwerks.com/
that might give you enough capability, but it isn't cheap.

It sounds like a 3D app might be what you need. For instance
http://www.ulead.com/cool3d/runme.htm . I have not used it,
but I've heard that it is pretty good, and not very expensive.

Thanks David. I also have cool 3d studio but I'm having trouble creating 3d
objects in it - I can't seem to find any examples/tutorials about making
objects from scratch!

Thanks again,

Dave

If you have exhausted the links on their site, then you may need to
look for appropriate forums.

I don't use this product (I use Lightwaxe 3D
http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/index.php )
but you may find using a vector program to create the shapes, and then
extruding them and pasting them together in Cool might be a way to start
