Flip a card animation


Question

I'm trying to flip a coloured rectangle. Is it possible to use the rotateTransition to do this?

I have tried the following code:

 public void rotateField(){
    RotateTransition rt = new RotateTransition(Duration.millis(3000), field[4][4]);
    rt.setByAngle(360);
    rt.setCycleCount(1);
    rt.play();
}

However, this doesn't flip the rectangle, it just rotates it. I would like to actually flip the rectangle as you would flip a playing card.

Is it possible to use the rotateTransition class for this?

I like Sergey's solution, it is such a clever use of ScaleTransition and working in 2D means you don't need to deal with some of the complexities of 3D.


Here a couple of 3D rotation samples.

Rotates a 2D Node (an ImageView) round the Y axis (requires JavaFX 2.2 + 3D support).

import javafx.animation.*;
import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.*;
import javafx.scene.image.*;
import javafx.scene.layout.StackPane;
import javafx.scene.transform.Rotate;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.util.Duration;

public class QuickFlip extends Application {
    @Override
    public void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {
        Node card = createCard();

        stage.setScene(createScene(card));
        stage.show();

        RotateTransition rotator = createRotator(card);
        rotator.play();
    }

    private Scene createScene(Node card) {
        StackPane root = new StackPane();
        root.getChildren().addAll(card);

        Scene scene = new Scene(root, 600, 700, true, SceneAntialiasing.BALANCED);
        scene.setCamera(new PerspectiveCamera());

        return scene;
    }

    private Node createCard() {
        return new ImageView(
            new Image(
                "http://www.ohmz.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Game-of-Throne-Magic-trading-cards-2.jpg"
            )
        );
    }

    private RotateTransition createRotator(Node card) {
        RotateTransition rotator = new RotateTransition(Duration.millis(10000), card);
        rotator.setAxis(Rotate.Y_AXIS);
        rotator.setFromAngle(0);
        rotator.setToAngle(360);
        rotator.setInterpolator(Interpolator.LINEAR);
        rotator.setCycleCount(10);

        return rotator;
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch();
    }
}

Not in 2D world. But you can imitate card flip using two ScaleTransitions:

Rectangle front = new Rectangle(50, 50);

ScaleTransition stHideFront = new ScaleTransition(Duration.millis(1500), front);
stHideFront.setFromX(1);
stHideFront.setToX(0);

Rectangle back = new Rectangle(50, 50, Color.RED);
back.setScaleX(0);

ScaleTransition stShowBack = new ScaleTransition(Duration.millis(1500), back);
stShowBack.setFromX(0);
stShowBack.setToX(1);

stHideFront.setOnFinished(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {
    @Override
    public void handle(ActionEvent t) {
        stShowBack.play();
    }
});

StackPane root = new StackPane();
root.getChildren().addAll(front, back);
Scene scene = new Scene(root, 300, 250);
primaryStage.setScene(scene);

primaryStage.show();
stHideFront.play();
