Setting Point of Interest
by Steve Zaransky on Apr 3, 2002 at 7:49:27 pm
My brain has gone dead and I can't remember how to set the point of interest on my object. I wnat to do a 360 degree rotation, but I want the anchor point to be something other than the default. Is that something I set in AE or is there a setting in Invig. (I used to know this but I can't think of it right now).

The solution is in assigning pivot points of sets.
A pivot point gets assigned as the center of the first item added to the set... adding other objects to the set after that doesn't change the pivot point. The first object can be something you intend to see, or a "null object" you put there just to be your pivot point. (make a simple cube or something).
Once you've established your pivot point with your cube and added the rest of the objects to the set, you can turn off visibility of that null object, or even remove it. Because other objects are still in the set, the pivot point won't change in either case.
I suspect it's all coming back to you now... right? Have fun!
