I'm trying to make a graphic that describes how to orient a planetary orbit in 3D. I animate my planet going around in an ellipse on a Bezier curve.
Next, I want to perform several rotations on the ellipse in space.
What is a simple 30deg x-rotation for the ellipse cylinder object is a -90 x, -30 y and 90 z rotation for the Bezier curve, which it accomplishes at a different rate. In this image you can seem them both rotating, but the Bezier ellipse lagging behind the cylinder.
Any idea what might be going on and how to fix it so they all rotate together at the same speed?
I'm using Blender 2.79 on Windows 10.
