translate/rotate with one fixed point not in the middle

Post by friday3000 »

Hi there

I am not sure if my question is stupid, but at the moment I have not found the solution by my self. I want to move a "polygon line" like a clock hand. one end is fixed, the other should be moved/rotated. Thanks for your help in advance.

Absolutely not a stupid question. Use the translate node to move your 'pivot' point to the centre of your window then apply a rotation. You can then move your element again to where you need it. Looking at the DancingRobot example project which demonstrates this.
