I have made a Blenderproject, boat with animated sail with (Shape Keys, maybe I need to try with empty) and vertex-parented the boat to the ocean surface. Not that bad result. http://vimeo.com/25922911 but I need to change direction on the wave from X to y and put up the lights.
I have 2 problem.
Change the heights from 0.7 to 15, but this dont work. My wave still tiny. I like my boat riding/tilting on top of the wave.
I select everything on the boat and try to rotate my boat at forward in the side - view, but nothing happen. I try inside Pivot window change from 3D Cursor and Bounding Box Center, and also with Chift+S change from Cursor to Center and Cursor for Selection and change everything inside 3D manipulator. Nothing let me rotate my boat to follow the wave down at the front and up at the back. I also try to disconect vertex parenting boat from the oceansurface Alt+P. Still no rotation.
This problem start when I upgrade Blender to latest version 2.58.1 38032.
Inside Preferences + Input I try to select Emulate 3D button and change from Trackball to Turnable. Still no rotating.
I can not rotate anythings, Selected lamps, objects. Nothing
Do you know where the problem is
Thank in advance
