Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating and scaling, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Now that we've moved things around a bit let's go ahead and rotate and scale them.…We're going to look at the rotate and scale tools.…Now remember, we have four different hotkeys.…We have q, w, e, and r, which gives us…select, w is move, e is rotate and r is scale.…So let's go ahead and take a look at the rotate tool first.…I'm going to hit e, or if I want I can just select the icon for the tool.…Now again this is very similar to the move tool, you can use it as a select tool.…
So you can marquee select multiple objects if…you want, or you can select them individually.…Now when you select an object with the rotate tool you'll get this gizmo.…This gives you several different ways to rotate the object.…If you click on the red, green, or blue…rings you get to rotate it around a specific axis.…So, if I wanted to click on red,…left-click and hold, I can rotate it this way.…I can rotate it this way around the green axis,…which is Y or around the Z axis, which is blue.…
Now, if I want I can click on this outer ring…
