I have a 3d sphere in the Invigorator set-up window. When I "spin" it from the sets timeline it appears to be swung around from an axis off to the side somewhere. I need it to spin. Can I move the axis?

Hi Bill,

In 3D Invigorator, the pivot point in a Set is calculated by taking all the objects in the Set, and making the center point be the pivot point. This means, if you have other objects in the Set besides the 3D Sphere, this will cause the Sphere to not rotate in the center. By removing all objects in the Set containing the Sphere, it will cause the Sphere to spin properly.

If you want to move the Pivot Point in a Set, one easy way is to add a large object (bigger than everything combined) in the Set. The center of the large object will be Pivot Point of the Set. Then, make the large object invisible, and you should be able to rotate the Set properly.

Best,
Edward
