Is this basically what’s going on with clear rotation and apply rotation?
Clear rotation (alt+R) makes the axis of the object go back to 0,0,0 and it brings the object with it.
Apply rotation (ctrl+A) also makes the object axis go back to 0,0,0 but in this case the axis goes back but the object stays in place.
Is apply rotation just for convenience so future clear rotations will reposition our object back to where we did an apply rotation to it? Or is there some other use for apply rotation?
Thanks for any ideas regarding clear rotation and apply rotation and their intended purposes. I’m trying to get a sense of what they are used for generally.
I heard that some people, as soon as they add anything immediately do a clear rotation (or an apply rotation?)…for example I heard because bones sometimes need 0,0,0 rotation in order for certain tools to work on them.
Also, I’m not clear about why alt+R is actually clear scale and rotation and not just clear rotation.
Thanks for any ideas about this,
