Missing Z-axis rotation
on Feb 4, 2010 at 12:55:34 pm

Any idea why a shape exported from Illustrator as a Motion Shape (via Export as Motion shape script) lacks Z-axis rotation when brought to Motion? X and Y axis can be rotated but there isn't Z axis available. Is this a bug in the export script or am I just missing something?

The object has no filters or behaviours applied.

See picture...

That's very odd - can you rotate it on the z-axis in the Inspector - IOW, is there a handle sticking out of the anchor point?

I'm having the exact same problem and have always been when using the Illustrator script. There is a handle coming out of the anchor point of the shape, but if I want to use parameters on the z-rotation, I'm out of luck because z-rotation doesn't show up in the inspector. The only way I can seem to animate the z-rotation is by using the record button and manually rotating it with the handle. Anybody have any further insights into this?

same problem also here: no z-axis on illustrator-scripted shapes.
I create a clone of the shape and then you have a z-axis on the clone…
