I have a 2x4 that is standing on end in Layout. I have rotated it on it's Pitch -90 degrees. Now I just want to roll it off screen but I have no control handles to do this. Of course I plunge into the manual to find that I can use Coord System to change to Local. Alas! I have my control handle but after moving my 2x4 and then using the control handle to rotate it a bunch of times. I click forward play/preview after keying the frame my 2x4 goes off screen but not in a roll. It acts crazy and for the life of me I can't figure out why. :mad: More frustrating is I can't get it to just roll off screen. :mad: :mad:
Can anyone please help me out? :) :confused:

Thanks in advance,

Stay in parent coord mode. Parent the object to a null and rotate the null. :)
