Hi guys,

I am trying to create this effect where faces of a cube rotate or fold about each other. Please see the video around 0:23 for the effect.

Can Motion rotate an object about a specified line in space?

Or can you change the local co-ordinate axes of an object so that it can rotate about it's local axes?

I have tried playing with the Orbit around and spin behaviours, but the motion is wrt the default x-y-z axes. I'd like it to be wrt the previous face of the cube.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
