iam still trying to figure out how to make that rotation with a target but now iam gonna ask something else
i think i could derive what i want from how free rotation works with cinemas rotating tool..
i observed carefully and it seems like when u click inside that yellow circle the point is created on a virtuall sphere and with mouse drag u lead that point around and the direction of travel is somehow added into overall rotation... of this part iam not so sure, anyway i ask if someone has an idea how rotate tool works in free mode, maybe some guides in what to use in the code?
any information will be very hellpfull, thanx!
