More specifically, I am creating 6+ object nodes using rendering software.
Each node has the exact same image positions.
They are representing phases of construction of a project or schemes of an
I wish to spin the object and change the angle of view while
also bing able to change states without losing the current angle of view.
Pardon my lack of appropriate "lingo."
Thanks for your help.
