Jeff Prosise wnats to demonstrate the new perspective transform in Silverlight 3.

 One of the many, many new features coming in Silverlight 3 (and featured in Silverlight 3 Beta 1, which shipped this week) is the perspective transform. In the Silverlight MyComix viewer I built for Silverlight 1.0, I faked the 3D rotation of a comic book cover around the Y-axis by using a ScaleTransform to squeeze the cover image horizontally and a SkewTransform to alter the angle of the top and bottom edges, but the effect wasn't perfect because Silverlight gave me no way to add perspective by displaying the top and bottom edges at different angles. In addition, I had to compute the parameters for the transforms using trigonometry.
