Is there a way to rotate objects by less-than-0.2-degree increments in Layout, using the mouse? The trick of changing the grid size for finer control only seems to work on movement, not rotation.

So, is there a key combinaton (e.g. alt-left-right-click while sneezing?) that will let me do this?

Thanks!

There is the "add rotation" tool but it's numeric. The other solution is the "graph editor". You can adjust value with mouse and see the result on your openGL view. In graph editor , if you zoom in , the rotation increment is finer.
By the way, to avoid the layout to freeze, don't do a large zoom-in on the graph editor when "fractional frame" is enable.

No mouse key? More info: I'm trying to line up a camera with a mark on a background image (poor man's motion tracker) -- so numeric is not really the most handy, for 50-odd keyframes I'll need...

Thanks

You can use the graph editor...
An other solution is to use a null as target for your camera. As grid size affect translantions it will be a bit easy.

Thanks, the null/target thing does the trick.
