I would be grateful for any information and advice that can be given, thank you.
I figured it out!!! It's the latest version of Photoshop CC, 2014.2.2, that is creating all the problems! I dropped back to the CC 2014.2.1 x64 and it worked beautifully! Please advise software techs and other designers having the same issue to drop back to previous version for animation to work correctly.
There are also 3d compatibility issues between Photoshop versions and updates. Adobe seems to be making changes in the 3d interfaces. Here is a PSD I saved is CS6. Now Opened in CS6 and Opened in CC 2014. CS6 timeline shows 3D Scene Position and two keyframe positions set. Where CC 2014 shows no 3D Scene Position. and no key frames are shown in the timeline.
When I click the play button in CS6 the earth rotate once about a stationary axis.
When I click the play button in CC 2014 the earth rotate once about its axis also the earth axis rotate around some axis moving the earth around in space. However it not around the sun.
Thanks JJ for taking the time to respond to my query. It took some head scratching but I was able to figure out that it's the version update and not me that's messing things up lol. I have informed Adobe support of the issue and hopefully on the next update they'll resolve this issue because it's a major one, in my opinion. I did figure out that if you want to rotate an object in CC you'll need first use the original CC 2014.2.1x64 and secondly you'll need to keyframe the 3D Mesh sublayer object. That'll create the desired animation. I hope that this will help others out there who are experiencing the same problem, best of luck to all you designers. At this point I find this issue resolved to the best that it can be done, thnx.
