View Full Version : Camera rotation problems...need help!!

I am having problems with my camera. P and B work but when I move my P which is green, the red doesn't follow it. I have two picture to show what I mean. I makes it so that I can't properly move the camera since one rotation matches another. One is normal and the other is what happens when I move the green.

is there a way to lock H P & B down to eachother like on the default has when you first open layout?

LWs solves rotations in this order: HPB.
H will effect P and B, P will effect B and B effects nothing.
This is also why you can get gimbal lock...rotating P 90 deg makes B coplanar with H which effectly loses you an axis of rotation.

You can get around this by parenting the camera to a null or
using quattro (quaternian rotator) or setting the coord system to world and using quaternian booster so you dont get sudden weird rotations.

Try different coord systems
