Lightbulb Doesn't revolve!

I'm sure I have used the correct settings as previously stated but whilst one of my dpa's revolved the other changes direction.

If anyne could spare a mo to look that would be great. It can be downloaded here. Non-revolving logo http://www.merrilymerryeyes.co.uk/serif.html

Really appreciated - I just can't see why.

Many thanks

Julian

Without being entirley sure why your animation doesn't rotate ... by slightly tilting the image in the final frame I have managed to get it to do a full circle. I think DP just needs a bit of help to decide which way the object is to turn.

See attached.

Martin, thank you so much.

It has shown me that the settings I used on a previously successful project (which I used here) are not generic settings. It must be to do with the object dimensions. There must be a mathematical formula to determine these settings!

Many thanks again.

You can give it that help by selecting the object and ticking (or unticking) the 'Clockwise Rotation' checkbox on the Easing tab. When I load your file I find the checkbox in an in-between state with a solid box I don't know how or why it got into that state!

I think that the 'in-between' state means that it'll choose the nearest direction, rather than force it to rotate clockwise or anticlockwise.
