Default Mouse Controls / Move forward and Backward - 04-24-2008, 10:06 AM

- I am using Alice to position an object. I use the mouse control to move a ballerina's front leg forward. The ballerina is facing front.
- this works.

If I turn the ballerina, the entire ballerina, 90 degrees clockwise, then if I use the mouse controls to move her leg forward or backward, this doesn't work as I expected. The leg moves toward the direction, when she was first facing front.

However, if I use the object tree methods, and issue a right leg turn forward or backward, this seems to work in the direction I expect.

Why do I see a difference when using the mouse control? Is this a bug or is this related to the 6 degrees of motion?

Never noticed it before, but I see the same thing. Don't know I'd actually call it a bug but the mouse and the methods for movement do seem to use different reference frameworks to define "forward", etc.
