Hello, Im new to blender… been using it now for 3 days… ive watched a bunch of tutorials but im kinda stumped on a few things right now. I have 2 questions.
Sometimes when i add a new mesh, the new mesh and a previous mesh that I had added are now both the same object… It doesnt happen every time i create a new one and I cant seem to figure out what im doing wrong when I create… and also … say i do this… i have a plane and a sphere that are now the same object… is it possible to split them? i have been deleting both and starting over. Ive tried switching to edit mode, selecting one item and then hitting split but this doesnt seem to work.
Ive messed with a few collision tutorials and I can get an object to fall and bounce off other stuff but I cant seem to get an object to rotate… say I have an extruded cube, rotated at 45 degrees… I would like when i hit animate this thing to rotate about the top point and fall like a pendullum would and just swing back and forth… So far I have been able to make the object, move my pivot point to the correct spot so that when i manually rotate it does rotate about the correct point… but when i hit animate the whole thing just falls straight down.
Thank you for taking the time to read all that, I hope what I said makes since.
