View Full Version : Rotating

Hey I'm kind of in a jam, when i rotate something to a degree of like 1000 it will only rotate like half a circle, i have had this problem before but I'm not sure how I fixed it before, my 3d max will start changeing things without me, lol. :wall:

You mean you activate key mode, rotate an object for 1000 degrees, then it moves half a circle when you play the animation, right? That happened to me too... Turned out it depends on the Reference Coordonate System ( view, local, etc... ) I dunno which one of them did the same thing that happened to you... Try using different reference systems to rotate your object. Good luck!

No its on auto, and its the strangest thing, it takes the "shortest route" so it will rotate all sorts of diffenent funky ways.

Dunno man. Same stuff happened to me, but I messed around with the Coordonate System and it got right.

Here. Though this may not be the answer to your dillema... Hell if this doesn't work, I dunno.
