Creating a simple animation of a human. the fore-arm is connected to the upper arm and the pivot point for the elbow is in the correct place but when i try to ajust the pivot point for the shoulder the shoulder drawing moves out of position and the pivot point is in the wrong place. what am i doing wrong?
If you already have a rotation applied to the drawing, moving the pivot will cause the drawing to move across the screen also.
This is caused by the way the position and rotation are computed.
To avoid this remove any rotations on the object and then place the pivot at the desired position.
Here is a tutorial/article that might help you get a better feel for pivot points and the relationships they have to your drawings in both drawing view and camera view. I hope you find it helpful. -JK
