I'm new to blender and followed this tutorial: https://youtu.be/b0N_Bz8amlw and I'm able to produce a mesh plane with a bend:
But when I press "R + X" to rotate on X axis I get the following warp instead of a rotation:
I'm wondering why is this happening and what is the cause of the problem?
I guess an additional education point would also be why do some youtube videos use UV sphere whilst other's use mesh plane bends to create a sphere, I can't seem to find out a simple explanation of the pro's and con's of each. (Perhaps this rotation is a con for a mesh plane?)
