Any help dealing with tricky 3D rotation?

(Tom) #1

Hi everyone - I was wondering if a wizard could help me with a 3D rotation issue.

I’m trying to make something very similar to the attached video - where a UI screen rotates around with 3 elements ‘popped’. I think the best analogy is a frontal view of two planets rotating around the sun.

It seems that the simplest way to have this happen would be by setting some sort of transform-z-origin ? I’ve experimented with trying to create an illusion of this 3D rotation by moving the element right then left again, but I’m sure there’s got to be a clean, simple way of doing this?

Any help would be very greatly appreciated!
