Dumb Rotation Question

Post by RealityCurve » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:28 am

Ok so I'm trying to animate an empty to rotate on it's local z axis but when i play back the animation it's only rotating on the global z axis. I have the empty tilted at a 45 degree angle but for some reason I just cannot figure out what's going wrong. Sorry for the dumb question but what am I doing wrong?

Perhaps parent that empty to a second empty, then animate the second empty's z-axis orientation?
