Rotate arrows around circle
on Jul 31, 2014 at 4:26:59 pm

I'm trying to do simple 3d animation - rotating the arrows around a circle. I tried to create a path and set auto-orient, but that doesn't work well.

Please see image to see what I need.



How is this done?

Thanks

One method that will work is to use text arrows from a font e.g. Zapf Dingbats or Wingdings and apply the 3D Rotate Around Circle preset.

Thanks, that works great! However, I'll need to do the same with logos later - is there an easy way to do this with an image?

I think you can shift the Z anchor point of your 3d layer and rotate it around the Y axis.

One option to automate the process is to use the Cylinder script found here to generate single row of elements in a 3D cricle.

try this arrow preset:
http://www.vdodna.com/products/arrow-preset/

in the tutorial section of that page you can see how you could bend them in 2D or 3D Space with native effects
