    Rotating Objects with Motion Paths (2007)

    Is it possible to make a motion path that actually rotates the object? I was trying to make it look like a joystick was being turned to the right, but the closest i could find was the "teeter" effect that wiggled it both left and right. I've attached the slide in 07 format to better show what i'm trying to do... if I save it as '97-'03 format the size balloons <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    Hi John

    I made a presentation that seemed to do what you want toa fashion, I manage to trim it to 98.5kb but it will not load here for some reason, I will try some other things to reduce it in size, basically I inserted a number of pages and placed a picture of the same front view of a plane the same size in each slide and adjusted the rotation slightly in each and then made the slide transition to 1 second which when played gave the effect of the right wing dipping.

    Cheers

    ahhh yeah that's a good idea, i guess i could have just done that. animation is pretty tedious!

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thanks for sharing John

    I have never reallly bothered with the spin effect, I changed your shape for a forward facing aircraft from clipart and changed to rotation to 180 and timing to 10seconds and hey presto one plane doing a roll.
