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"

Translating an object around a point at a fixed distance using mouse position input

The objects are not in a hierarchy.

Eventually I'd like to achieve a result similar to how pitch and yaw move the position of the camera in third person template. (but without the hierarchy that drives that setup) In the case of third person, the camera is orbiting around the player character. Whereas in this case, I would like to orbit an arbitrary fixed location.

I thought I could achieve this by experimenting with the rotate vector around axis node but haven't been able to make any progress with it.

I ended up solving this problem by using the rotate vector on axis node. I rotated one vector on axes of another.
