Plane
« on: April 24, 2009, 03:50:35 AM »
I feel like a noob for asking this but, does anybody know how to rotait the plane object about the y-axis? Whenever I try it only rotaits around the z-axis.

after much fiddeling with the settings this is what I came up with, the default plane has the settings of:

vector A [1, 0, 0]
vector B [0, 0, 1]

I rotaited the plane by adjusting the values to

A [1, 0, -.125]
B [.125, 0, 1]

So essentially to rotate the plane you just have to change those two values (from above) but they must be equal and opposite, otherwise I was not able to get any results.

Now, thank you for this. I seem to have trouble with it all the time; but then, I have a lot of trouble with other TG issues as well.
