How to apply 3d transition between two activities in android?

I have an android application and while switching between two activities I want to apply 3D transition... I know the method

overridePendingTransition()
but it does not have any animation for 3d.. So how it can be done?

Answer

I had used 3D Cubic Transition between activities.Credit goes to Robert Heim who is developer of this program.

Below is snippet

Activity1.java

package org.vipul;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class Activity1 extends Activity {
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity1);

        Button switchActivityBtn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.bSwitchActivity);
        switchActivityBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                animatedStartActivity();
            }
        });
    }

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        // animateIn this activity
        ActivitySwitcher.animationIn(findViewById(R.id.container),
                getWindowManager());
        super.onResume();
    }

    private void animatedStartActivity() {
        // we only animateOut this activity here.
        // The new activity will animateIn from its onResume() - be sure to
        // implement it.
        final Intent intent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(),
                Activity2.class);
        // disable default animation for new intent
        intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_ANIMATION);
        ActivitySwitcher.animationOut(findViewById(R.id.container),
                getWindowManager(),
                new ActivitySwitcher.AnimationFinishedListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onAnimationFinished() {
                        startActivity(intent);
                    }

    }

    @Override

        // disable default animation for new intent
        intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_ANIMATION);

                    @Override
                    public void onAnimationFinished() {
                        startActivity(intent);
