Hi, I was wondering how to make digital cube templates or images.
What I mean is a digital picture of a cube showing 1, 2, or 3 sides of the cube.

What programs are used to make these images?
Are they made so you can just swap the colors out or does one have to make each and everyone indiviually?

Any imformation would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can go to Visual Cube. Pass the parameters into the URL and you get your cube:

Wow! Thank You!

Is there somewhere to generate a randomly scrambled cube?
or do I just have to put random moves into thr generator?

Also, is there a tutorial for this somewhere that I could read or watch?
I read the weage but I'm still a bit confused.
Mostly just play around with a URL to see what it does.

The "size=300" is how large the cube is in pixels.
"pzl=3" means 3x3x3. You can change it to 4,5,6,7... whatever cube size you want
"alg=" is the moves you make. I just entered some random letters for a 3x3x3 scramble above.

Which export format would be best to put the cub image into a video?
png or jpeg

thanks for all the info
