    Hello,

    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!

    Might be "Arcball Rotation". (?) See "Graphics Gems IV", "Arcball Rotation Control" by Ken Shoemake.
