Core Animation Episode 4: Creating Perspective Transformations

In this episode we learn about 3D transformations to give our images perspective. We rotate the images from the previous images in 3D space and start to talk about all the effects we’ll use to get the Cover Flow look. This episode fleshes out the example so it’s better suited to providing the richness of a Cover Flow UI. We also get to see several debugging techniques (prompted by an innocent typo near the end) and do some live refactoring in Xcode.
