or, can be found under the same title at this website:
i just cant seem to get it to work again. Its simple.
what i did:
1. Dropped the asset onto a timeline, inserted rotational keyframe at the beginning of the asset: "0" Then, another rotational keyframe at the end of the asset: "360"
2. Next, I made a "nest."
3. then moved the next to the right (for example) and apply -360.
I tried numerous times. The viewer shows a "slug" timeline, and NOT THE NEST.
I'm not understanding where I need to apply the "opposite 360" rotation. I tried on the Seq, but only a Slug timeline appears, I tried on the nest, and on the original/asset. (I presume, the original/ asset is not where you apply , in this case, -360.
When I applied it on the nest:
I get the circular motion, then the asset does not stay level.
I can get the asset to rotate 360, but cannot get it the asset to move in the clock-like dial, instead, it stays stagnant "center 0/0"
Thank you in Advance,

After nesting the clip with the 360 rotation, when you move the nested clip to the right or left and adding the rotation keyframes to the nest, make sure you are moving it by adjusting the ANCHOR POINT of the clip and NOT just by adjusting the x/y coordinates. Moving the anchor point will cause the clip to orbit around that point rather than around the center of the clip. It should be pretty straightforward.
