I was wondering how to make a horizontile counter bar that slants about 30* on each Virtical edge with out aveing to make an animation for a health bar for the values will need to change with the bar still looking smooth. Please help thank you
Create your horizontal counter at the maximum length you need it.
Then two active objects the colour of the background these shapes:
| \ - and one the same but flipped vertically and horizontally.
Now make sure the objects are positioned at each end of the counter, to cover up the vertical ends, and make them appear slanted. The actives must be brought to the front. Should work. Could make some very stylish counters this way.
