I want to rotate parent items automatically in the opposite direction. How can I do that. Can I make an expression or something?

If you don't understand my lousy explanation. Click on the image below.
I want to have the faces to be horizontal if I rotate the bar.

anyone???

:help:

Expressions should work for this. Create one that says:

0 - [bar.Rotation.B]

and apply it to the bank channel of each smiley face.

Hello,

you can do it without expressions. Just use "follower" and set the child items ( in my examples case the bank channel) to -1 so it rotates in the opposite direction to the bar and so stays pointing up. Hope I understood what you needed to do!

Hi Eric! I can't get the expression to work. Wenn I apply it to the smiley's it's suddenly unparented? What am I doing wrong? I really need to get in to the world of expressions.


and Paul, thnx for your tip. This works great, I'm a happy man now!
