Simple Object Rotation from Mouse Position...
« on: October 20, 2016, 06:05:19 AM »
Hi there,

I've written up a short, simple tutorial for rotating an object in two, separate axes via mouse input: http://www.holyfingers.co.uk/main/blog/2016/10/19/on-the-turn/



You'll need the GetMouseDeltaPosition action from here: https://github.com/jeanfabre/PlayMakerCustomActions_U4/blob/master/Assets/PlayMaker%20Custom%20Actions/Input/GetMouseDeltaPosition.cs

I've attached the scene as well.

Cheers,

Nick

Hi,
Great!
I have added it to the User Tutorials wiki

One thing tho.
You should avoid using Itween, it is outdated, very laggy and will be removed from playmaker in a future version.

You can look into DOTween and you can find the actions for it here
Ecosystem might not work at the moment
here are direct Github Links to the custom actions :

Thanks for the heads up! I'll give DOTween a look over and update the tutorial when I get a moment!
