Hello All, I have a linked prim that I am trying to rotate about an axis that is not through its origin. I wanted this to happen as smoothly as possible, but I want to make sure that the way I am attempting to accomplish this is actually not possible versus me just doing something wrong. I tried llSetKeyframedMotion, but then realized you can only use this on the root prim. I was then experimenting with llTargetOmega, but couldn't figure out how to move the axis such that it doesn't originate at the origin. My wife (the creator of this linked object) has also tried moving the origin to the required point in Blender, but after a ton of digging we've discovered that due to many reasons, this is not possible (without a complicated process to "trick" the SL uploader) when the object is uploaded into SL. Here's my question: Is it true that my only course of action here is to use a timer event and move the rotation position in increments with the method discussed in the "Rotation" page of the wiki on how to move the rotation axis ("Rotating Vectors")? Is there another method I'm not thinking of? Or am I using the previously mentioned functions incorrectly/not understanding how they work? Thanks!
