Yesterday, I managed to make movieclips rotate around a custom axis (not around the registration point) like this: http://img221.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t01vc3.swf
Basically, the registration point is in the center and I made it so that it’s _x and _y properties would change in such a way that the top would be attached to the desired point.
Well, I’ve come across a problem of a slightly different nature and I just can’t figure out how to do solve it!
In this case, the registration point is on the top-left corner and I was wondering how I would be able to make it appear like if it’s rotating from the middle using the same base principles as with my example above (using sin, cos, tan, etc…)
I have attached the source file underneath.
PS. I’m sure I could find other ways to alter the registration point in this case, but I need to know how to do it. It’s quite frustrating.
