When it comes to rotating objects and shapes, there’s a few different ways to go about it.
From a more freehand approach to rotating, all the way to entering precise angles. knowing which to use and when will give you a great competency when using VinylCut.

90 guys in today's video final cut, we're gonna be looking at a few different ways to rotate objects and shapes. Let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za y, guys on that, we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and also we upload them daily so occupy there for a new content. Otherwise, if we head back into the programme here now, we've been the boss covered a few, um, in a few tutorials, the rotation. But in today's video, we'll be looking at all the different ways we can rotate the shape. So it's around four ways that we can do this simply, and then the most common way is most probably. Select your shape, so either you drag a selection box over it. But make sure like we mentioned before it goes right over so it doesn't it will not select it, or you click on your shape or you got your layers tab you on the right, and then you click on your shape. There you can also pro to keep shifting. Then, if you drag a selection box, whichever shapes the selection box touches all select what you want to know. Uh, the most common one, I would say is to still control handles here on the transform. Okay, areas. So we've got this little one on top year that looks like two arrows showing different directions and the same at the bottom. Now, if we click this, then we can actually rotate the shape, as you can see. No. Also, if you keep shifting while you do that, then it will snap it in the amount of the grease that set under your preferences. So in my case will be 15 degree increments then. So that's the first way. Another way we can do this just rather simple. If you select any tab, then normally it goes to its dominant properties, which in our case, will be a position and size with this icon with four little arrows. And then under year, we've put rotate the year. We've got to take clockwise and rotate counterclockwise. So then when you click this so you can see it does it in a 45 degree amounts. So this is nice. If you wanna know, you've got exact, uh, angles, so you don't want to get something where Let's say you rotate it down, but it's not 100% straight. So then, uh, this tool does work rather handy, you know, Just rotated twice, and then you have it. I'm an exact thing. And then, uh, the next one is two ways we can do it. So either you can go on top of the object on your top menu, and then we go to transform. And then under there, there will be a fight in court rotation. Now, uh, you have this Q option as well, but, uh, we'll be living on angle angles, actually default. And then here you can put in your amount of rotation of your degrees. So let's say 90 then. Unfortunately, there's no update here, but you can't say apply if you wanna see it while in this window, as you can see there. Now it's done it 90. You can say, Okay, we'll keep it. Changes. Like I said, This way it's got two ways you can do it so you can also right click and then from, uh, this menu transform rotation. And like I said, this is a very nice tool. If you have an exact amount of, uh, rotation you need to make. So it is, uh, you know, let's say you've got design requirements and it has to be rotated at the exact amount. Then this really helps otherwise, but yeah, well, actually do is rotate it. And then at the bottom year, um, it will show you the kind of degrees, but as you can see, you get a point, this amount. So it's very hard to get it exactly the right amount. But yeah, so and then the last one is kind of, um, that's not a normal standard Rotate, but it's the three d rotate. So to locate that we can go on top of the top meant to affect. Then we got your slowly rotate. And then from here, Now we can see. Make sure your order previously enabled unfortunate everything's greyed out, so you cannot see the arrow. Just keep in mind where it was pointing last. Now we can see it now, not only X and y, but the Z axis, as always there. So then, as you can see, we can kind of start turning this as it was a three dimensional object. And then you can also play with perspective, which is rather handy. So then, as we adjust this, you can see bring it more into perspective, more out. Then once you click, OK, we'll apply the changes for you and then you have a three D looking shape that is rotated. So yeah, that is a, uh, way to rotate shaped objects. Opposites works on text as well. And then yeah, Otherwise, if you guys go to final cut, uh, the programme is freely available. There just had to download page. Otherwise, if you guys go to softwaretraining.co.za will see the zebra. Um, this video is available there and more like it. And like, also mentioned, as you can see, we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. Then, um, if you guys are looking for anything specific just got into the search option, then, um, yeah, if you still gonna find what you're looking for, just go request a training video, and then we will make that for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
