Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Problems with rotations

I am having trouble with relative rotations... what am I missing here:

If an actor is looking in the direction of world X+, rotating a component within that actor using a "set relative rotation" node with the component as target, and applying a change in pitch gives the expected result (the component rotates around world Y). But if I then yaw the actor to Y+ direction, and apply the SAME set relative rotation (a pitch) to the component, this time the component rotates around World Y AGAIN, instead of the expected world X. So my pitch has become a roll.

What have I missed here? I was expecting the reference frame used by set relative rotation to rotate with the whole actor, so it wouldn't matter where the actor is rotated to, a relative rotation of the component would be relative to the actor only, but this is clearly not the case.
