Looking for some one to create a vortex with the graphic in the link below. Or someone to just tell me how to do it. I've created the object in LW 8.3, but don't know how to actually make a vortex with the graphic mapped to it. The animation that's on the webpage was not created in LW. Anybody want to help out? Email me at [email protected] See the link below:

PS I'm working on a Mac Quad core G5

That's a 2D effect, do you have After Effects?

In 3D you'd bring that into Layout and applying Deform-Vortex in the object properties' deform tab. You'll at least need a hi-res mesh and / or subpatch polygons, but it might not work like you think anyway.
