I’ll try and explain this the best I can. I have a spot light like the kind you see on the top of prison towers. The base swivels 360 degs. Two prongs from the base hold up the light-case from the side. It kind of looks like the little text picture.
I want the lightcase to be able to be able to swivel on its supposts so it can point into the sky or onto the ground. It looks fine while the base is aligned with the views, but as soon as I rotate the base to point at an odd angle I can’t tilt the light because it will ‘unhook’ from its supports. Right now the light fixture is a child to an empty and the empty is a child to a base. (one of the empty’s axis goes through the light where I want it to pivot) What I want to know is how I can restrict the empty so it can only rotate on one axis, the axit that goes through the side, supports.
Or am I going about this the wrong way?
Thank you for your help, and if what I said made no sense at all I’ll find a place to post the blend file!
