Create a 3D image of a Triple Plait circle. Each of the 3 elements of the circular plait need to be identical, uniform in shape and like a smooth cylinder.
It important for the overall design that the plaited cylinders making up the circle have a distinct 3D shape with definite outline. For identification each individual cylinder plait will be emanating a distinct colour made up of the colours Gold, Blue and Green (much like a 3 neon rope lights plaited together in a perfect circle). The ration dimensions of the radius of the circle to the combined thickness of the Triple Plait is 20:1.
Once the initial image has been rendered it needs to be animated so that it moves in two directions simultaneously and in proportion on itself. The first being in a circular clockwise direction and the second spinning toward the viewer. Both of these directions at best guess for a ratio of revolutions to one another are 1:2 for every 360Deg rotation in a clockwise direction of the circle with a duration of 5 seconds there is a 10 second cycle for the the top of the circle to spin forward from its original position back to starting point on the stable x-axis this location equally divides the circle into to semicircles of identical size.
Image is to be used on a home webpage and therefore must run in flash as a 10 second play repeating itself on a loop.
