How to use api.rotate()?

(Mintmedia) #1

I need to use undocumented api.rotate() function.

rotate( [nodeID], [rotateTo], [duration], [easing], [callback] )

My question is:. what should I use as a second parameter [rotateTo]? I tried nearly everything and nothing works. I need to rotate one node horizontally by 270 degrees.

@mintmedia rotateTo is a 4 dimension array containing angle (in radian), xAxis, yAxis, zAxis.

Thank you for the reply. I tried to use the array but unfortunately nothing works for me. Could you give me some examples?

I tried to rotate a node by 270 degrees using X axis. This code

api.rotate(nodeId, [Math.PI*3/2, 1, 0, 0], 1, 'ease', function(){

doesn't work properly. What am I doing wrong?

the rotate api is now documented here:

Here's a working example:

A few things you can check in your code:

  • Make sure the rotation is applied to a MatrixTransfrom node
  • Make sure the rotation is applied to the right variable, this can be tricky in JavaScript when looping over a collection

If you can post a link to some code and the model you're trying to manipulate, that could help.

thank you very much for the answer. Something has to be wrong with my model ( ec2a817b8a9c42128d9522231ea22b8c ):
