    Help with tumbling effect

    Hi All,

    I need help creating a smooth spinning or tumbling effect. Basically, I need to spin a logo from infinity up to full screen in a few spins; maybe 4 or 5.

    I tried and mine looks okay but it doesn't really spin in a believable way. Might be spinning towards the viewer or any from. I'm looking for a smooth, rotates toward the "camera" kind of effect.

    Any help, muchos gracias.

    Is the logo 2D or 3D?

    Hi DStone,

     

    Its a 2D logo. A jpeg of some computer generated artwork. Thanks. I can't get it to look slick and smooth, always seems as though one of the spins is going backwards or somesuch.

    Hi DStone,

    Any help you could pass on regarding the spinning logo effect would be most appreciated. My spins just don't look smooth and realistic, even though I am using the correct math..+90, -90, etc. in the keyframes.

    No doubt I am using an incorrect setting or maybe even the wrong effect to accomplish this. Thanks in advance.

    Could you post a screen capture of the effect settings (expand everything first)? Also of the keyframe graph (which is probably where the problem lies).

    KF type (bezier etc.)? And are there intermediate KFs?
