Hi, I've been asking for this in blender for a long time, and just came back to this forum to make a post about it. Luckily this one's already here. It seems like it would be a simple thing to implement. See modelers like Wings, Milkshape, Nendo, and I believe 3dsmax to see what we mean. It's basica...

Alright, I see there is a difference. However, I was told that many versions ago, Turntable worked correctly, ie, no rolling on the z-axis. This is the way that all other 3d apps I've seen (Max, Maya, trueSpace, etc.) use when moving the viewpoint, and I think many would appreciate if this was fixed...

jeeeez... now i remember why i stopped posting here. OK, i was wrong, they are different, but that doesn't change the fact that it's most likely broken. First, I was told that many versions ago, Turntable worked correctly, ie, no rolling on the z-axis. Second, all other 3d Apps use that view mode. T...

BUG: Turntable view mode doesn't work

Clicking the "Turntable" button doesn't do anything. The viewpoint continues to "roll" (rotate around its z axis) when dragging with the MMB, and works exactly like Trackball mode. Please do not post ways to rotate using the keyboard, etc., I am only reposting this bug because I and many others woul...

turntable mode works perfect, it's just sensitive to where in the viewport you start dragging. middle of viewport - works practically like maya/max/xsi/lw -> no change of up-vector/camera "tilt" if you start dragging away from the viewport center, you have the ability to change the upvector like in...

I've been begging for turntable to be fixed since I first started using blender, and even offered to attempt to patch it myself if someone would help, but generally I just get responses saying "use the numpad to rotate" or "Try clicking on turntable." Let's hope someone out there who understands the...

I like the way it works by default. if I need to spin round one axis I use the keyboard numpad! Too bad... you've already got trackball mode (the default mode) for that kind of thing! :P You don't also need a broken turntable mode that does almost the same thing. Blender purists might like the rand...

Please bring real turntable back! The bizarre z-axis rolling is one of the main Blender interface "quirks" that makes a lot of people like me give up on it in frustration. All other 3D apps i've used use "turntable" mode by default (and a lot of them don't even allow rolling the viewpoint on its z-a...

Just bringing this back, as I'm still hoping it can be put in. As I said above, using Turntable doesn't stop the camera from rolling on its Z-axis like it should. Maybe Turntable mode is broken? Maybe it's only broken for me?

anyone? opinions? is this a bad idea? impossible to implement? anyone really roll the camera on its z-axis on purpose while they're modelling?

bug - Turntable mode

<edited to add> I read on the elysiun forums that Turntable mode is actually broken and should be working as I described it. This is just to let people know it's a bug and not a request ;). <end edited section> Hi... I'm new to blender and struggling with its interface still :oops: One thing that wo...
