Sphere Rotate
on Nov 9, 2007 at 4:40:35 pm

I'm trying to create a sphere in PA and rotate it 360 degrees. Think of rotating a planet. I've added a texture bitmap to the sphere but I can't seem to get the sphere to rotate a complete revolution. It almost looks as if PA is bending or morphing the texture map around the sphere. Ideas?

Hi IU Video,

Are you doing this during a pose or a transition? Is the rotation the problem or is it the way the texture map looks applied to the sphere?

It is during a transition. When trying to apply during a pose, nothing seems to happen. The texture map looks fine (warped, as if it is wrapped onto the sphere), but it only seems to move about 90 degrees (we have it programmed for 360). We would like it to move at least 360 degrees, if not more.

Hi IU Video,

Why not use a pose action... in your first pose, go to the pose action presets. choose spin y. move the rotation pointer so you get 360 degrees or whatever else you want.
