Q: offset the rotation axis?

Akiem's picture

Hi, Im just starting....

Is it possible to offset the rotation axis? Suppose I have an image, on the image is a circle but its off-center. Can I use that circle as the axis to rotate the image?

thanks

Re: Q: offset the rotation axis?

You can rotate about arbitrary axes using the 3D Transformation patch, and setting the X/Y origins to the position you want to rotate about.

(Note that this won't work with billboards -- billboards don't obey the 3D Transformation patch, and thus can't be rotated off-center)
