With the Autorotate function, a container can be set to continuously rotate round one of its axes.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> Tools

Autorotate Properties


  • Axis: Selects the rotation axis either X, Y or Z.

  • Direction: Selects the direction of the rotation, either Right or Left.

  • Velocity: Sets the speed of the rotation. The unit is degrees per frame.

  • Ease In (frames): Sets the number of frames the object uses to accelerate smoothly from no motion to the speed set in Velocity.

  • Ease Out (frames): Sets the number of frames the object uses to retard from the rotation speed to a stop.

  • Starting Angle: Sets the angle from the objects current position, from which the object is to start from.

  • Ping Pong: Enables a ping pong motion where the object rotates forward and backward between two angles on the axis.

  • Ping Pong Angle 1: Sets angle 1 for Ping Pong Mode.

  • Ping Pong Angle 2: Sets angle 2 for Ping Pong Mode.

  • Ease in: Initializes the rotation from the starting angle selected and with the Ease in value selected.

  • Ease out: Stops the rotation. The stop motion is influenced by the Ease out parameter.

  • Continue: Starts the rotation from the point where it was halted. The value of Ease in is disregarded.

  • Halt: Stops the rotation without regard to Ease out.
