The old 'Y' rotation issue
on Aug 19, 2011 at 1:46:36 pm


Firstly i am using ProAnimator V4.5.1.

I have an animation where some text flies towards the camera, springs to a halt and then is supposed to rotate around a common centre on it's Y axis and then fly off towards the viewer.

My problem arises at the rotate along Y axis point.

In creating the rotation as a transition, two issues arise.
The first is that during the rotation the letters appear to bunch up together however as the rotation is pretty fast the motion blur may disguise this, so not a major issue.
The second and main problem is that when playing back the animation nothing happens.

It's almost as if the code thinks +360 and -360 are the same as 0 so don't bother to apply rotation.
I can achieve a perfect rotation as a pose action but then i loose the ability ease in and out the acceleration and deceleration.

My questions then are, Is this a bug? Is it possible to somehow add ease in and out to a pose action? or is there another workaround for doing this as a transition?

Thanks in advance for your time on this.
