Local Rotation

Post by markusp » Thu Jun 20, 2013 4:11 pm

Hi,

is there a way to rotate the scattered objects around their local rotation axis? Whenever I align the objects to the surface normal, using random rotation value will rotate the objects in world space, causing intersections.

Regards,
Markus

I tried the new build, but I still can not rotate round the local axis when the scattered objects are aligned to normal. e.g. when I use the constant rotation around Y-axis, I would like the object to rotate like the green arrow in the attachment indicates. However, at the moment it rotates like the red arrow instead.

Like this http://youtu.be/lzXt3S20l_M ? This was exactly what I've done in this build. Let me check the files then. Btw, what is your Maya/V-Ray versions?
