Shape rotation follow/orient null
on Jun 27, 2020 at 9:14:10 am


I can't get this to work just when i thought it was a simple one ☺

I have multiple shapes with the anchor point centered in the middel.
My goal is, with a null in the center of the comp, that only the shapes rotation follows /orient the null.

Like when I move the null back in Z space its must be like there is a 'string' attach to the null but the positions on the shapes stay the same.

Many this image will clarify.

Hope someone can help!

See if:

lookAt(fromPoint, atPoint)

in your shape's orientation property can help.

Replace fromPoint with your shape's position property and the AtPoint to be the null (I don't think it matters which way round they are. - After Effects Tutorials
