Motion Path Animation - Rotate

Oct 07, 2015

Hello All,

Is there a way to use a motion path to rotate an object. For example, if I had a rectangle at 45 degrees and wanted to animate it to 0 degrees. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

How is the animation supposed to be triggered when the object is already on screen? Is it triggered by a button click? You can always add triggers to hide and immediatly show the object again, that would trigger the entrance animation again. 

Here is one example of spin entrance animations that are continuously triggered.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your example! That helped trigger some additional ideas however not exactly what I was hoping for. What I have is an office scene. A document is out of an folder at an angle (at about a 45 degree angle). When someone clicks on the document/folder, the course zooms in at which I was hoping the document could straighten itself out so it appeared to the end user that they are reading right off the document. And I figured it would be easier to read that way rather than with text at an angle. Hopefully that provides better context of what my goal is.

Thank you,

Hi Zeb!

I hear what you're saying! Unfortunately, I'm seeing the same behavior when I try to change the rotation of a shape in the "Rotate" state.
