Three simple FireMonkey demos in a short YouTube video (sorry there is no audio, I'm in the mountains on vacation and figured out I had no decent microphone with me), showing:

  • 3D text at design time (you can see me moving and rotating it on various axes live)
  • A graphical list box filled with an animation (the pizza topping you pick with move and rotate at once). Notice also the list with graphic and text
  • A 3D Pizza Menu, with two opposing images rotating and swinging as you turn menu pages, and a side element also moving. 

Hope it gets some feeling of the this new application platform. These demos (but the initial sign) are part of a set of examples I'm preparing for an Embarcadero white paper on the FireMonkey application platform. More information about this white paper and FireMonkey will be out soon.
