Hi,
can somebody help me, how to get this rotation to work :(

I have a disk parented to a center and when i make a rotation of disk on GREEN axis the animation gets strange
there was something similar in the forum (but i cant find it) compairing to Blender.
Is there a way to fix it??? :help:

its cos ur using local handles... LW stores rotation as parent... if u dont have a parent handle for a given rotation axis, you will get crossover or drift by usign local.

yes :)
after some tests I`ve got this - may be that I wanted (in test), but why so dificult...

its not difficult... you're just missing info on rotation order, and hierarchy construction... and if u dont know it, none of it will make sense, and things like this will seem completely alien.
