I've created my first 3D cube in AE and I am trying to manipulate it in 3d space.
I've created a null object and made it the parent of all six faces.
Everything works fine, except for one thing.
When I change the value of the X-setting on my null object, the cube rotates vertically rather than horizontally. That seems to be the opposite of what I would expect.
Any thoughts on that?
Here are two screen shots that illustrate my dilemma.
Huh? Things look just fine. The x-axis is the one that runs from right to left in that comp.
Hold a pen in front of you by your fingers, using both hands. Using the tumb and forefinger of each hand, make the pen turn. That's rotation on the x-axis... which is what your cube is doing.
Well, I guess the good news is that everything in AE was created correctly and is behaving properly!
Much appreciated..... I need to learn to think in 3D!
