I have an object that I have spining on the y-axis, round and around. I also want to have rotate around the same pivot point while still spinning how is this possible? Like if I had a stick and threw it through the air as it would spin and rotate.
Create a Dummy helper object.
Align the Dummy to the center of the stick, or at the point of rotation.
Link the stick to the Dummy.
Animate the spinning of the stick on the Y-axis.
Animate the rotation of the Dummy on the the axis to give you the end-over-end effect.
