I would suggest you buy the friends of ed book second hand on amazon,
and if you get something good together but get stuck on a small
aspect post some code on twelvestone forum as the author does hang
there sometimes. As for lighting you could dynamically modify the
slices to achieve the effect, if in your case each slice stack is
based on a single movie clip with a second movie ( lid ) on top, then
inside the stack movieclip you can have the four edge movies that you
could tint with color code. Due to the way slices are viewed you are
maybe limited to viewing angle.
Slice 2D to Create an Extra Dimension
Suppose you are slicing an apple parallel to the core. If the slices
are cut really thin, you end up with many 2D cross sections. By
stacking them in the order they existed in the original apple, you
can re-create a 3D apple.
This hack works on the same principle: create a lot of 2D slices of
an object, then move them as if they were stacked together in the
original object. If done properly, the result looks like it is a 3D
shape that has volume.
