Hi all ,
I create this comp http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU_3u_bQ2D4 and i wonder how can i achieve that the moon will rotate around the earth from up to buttom ( x rotation ) with the exising animation on the Y rotation and in the same comp or some other technique.
i create the comp with camera that is parented to a null object and the null is rotated on the Y rotation axis .
If your moon is parentend to the sun, then it's easy to do. Rotate the sun on the z or x axis, and in your earth orientation, rotate in the oposite direction the x or z axis (so your earth doesn't appear to have been rotated).
Tell me if it does the trick for you,
hope that helps,
the sun is not 3D layer .
i created the second moon and another null , i parented the new moon to the new null then i parented the new null to the old null and adjust the X axis rotation on the new null and that done the trick http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sT3ZL3PwmTw
