Jet Strike x-axis rotation issues

Postby stevemintz on 10/21/2018, 8:35 pm

Hi.

I am having problems with the gimbal, or anchor point that provides the axis of rotation.
I need the axis to travel and be oriented with the object. In this case an airplane. Right now the gimbal, or achor point is fixed and oriented in the world position.

I need it to stick with and travel with the orientation of the plane. Example, if the plane is pointed right at me x-axis works as it should. If I have it pointed leftward it rotates as if it were the z-axis.

I am attaching examples to show

Thanks
Steve

I figured it out. Needed to create a group null and use the rotation tool.
