I know I saw a tutorial on this a while ago but I cant figure out why this is acting this way. I am rotating an object in layout and the bank ( blue line) and the Heading ( red line) end up on the same plane. When I rotate it the heading doesnt move. ?

Any ideas

Well I found it, under the modify tab>Genteral > Coord System it was set to parent, I set it to local and it seems to fix my issue.

This Q has appeared like 4 times now in the past week, lol.

Its rotation order... and the "lining up" is called gimbal lock. By switching to local u change the manipulator behaviour only.

If your positioning stuff for stills... its fine, fire and forget... If its for motion, ull have issues.

scoll down to rigging, and look at the roation problem vid.
