So Apple recently had a countdown to their 1 billionth app download and it used a rolodex flipping type of effect. This actually turned out to be running on a sprite image which is composed of different flipping "states", then jQuery quickly moves through these animations for each new download.
I'm desperately trying to create a similar effect in Photoshop that I can use for a small web application. I can find tons of clock PSD freebies to work with, but I'm unsure of how to go about skewing the images to create the flip-like effect.
Ultimately the goal is to create a large sprite image containing all of the different number states. The scaled version I included above is the closest I can find to what I'm looking to build - also included it below as a direct image.
I would appreciate any help on this! It seems that using a background sprite is the easiest way to duplicate this effect on a webpage. So I'm just stuck at physically creating these different "states" of animated flipping.
