Smooth Rotation Deceleration
« on: January 09, 2019, 03:58:49 AM »
Hi,

I know the topic has been up before but the "Constant Drag Speed" isn't doing the job I need it to do.

When rotating the earth the rotation abrupts immediately as soon as I let go of the mouse button. I would like a setting where I can define for how long time the earth should de-accelerate before stopping completely. In my scenario I would like the earth to continue spinning for 3-4 additional seconds after releasing the mouse button / touch input, but slowly decrease the rotation speed.

Is it possible you think?

I'm using:
Camera Rotates
Speed: 0,5
Allowed axis: Both
Keep straight: checked
Everything else in this section is unchecked (i.e. including Constant Drag Speed)

Thanks!

Hi,
When "Constant Drag Speed" is off, the rotation de-accelerate smoothly. I understand you want to specify a custom damping speed until it stops?

Even though "Constant Drag Speed" is unchecked the earth stops in litterally a millisec. Yes, it's smoother compared to Constant Drag Speed, but still, 0.01 sec for de-acceleration is too quick for me (perhaps something is incorrect in my settings...?).

Yes, it would be awesome to have an additional setting which would allow me to define the number of seconds between mouse-release / touch-release (rotation continues) and the moment the earth/camera has fully stopped rotating.
