How to rotate a certain part of the drawing?

I’m doing a gacha life animation for the first time, and i want to rotate the different body parts with my fingers, but all it’s doing is rotating the whole screen not the body part itself. Is there a feature that im not seeing? I can’t get premium so what do I do or how do I do it?

Hello,

You can use the lasso tool to select that particular body part and then rotate. You just need to be on the same frame/layer where you have drawn that body part when selecting with Lasoo tool.

The rotating handle is already there. Maybe you don't have the newest app version of it?

Maybe. I'll check.

I meant like, spin the the thing you select. You know, like you could slightly spin the object. (Not like the flipping sides.)

Rotation is turning a selected thing circular around a point - that is there in the app by using the selection tool and then moving the handle on top of the selection either left or right.

Spinning as in rotating around one own's axis (like a ballerina) could be achieved by transforming only the width of a selection for example - that is also there by using the selection tool and then just decreasing the width of the selection.

If you mean something else pls show me a video or gif or whatever of it :)

Well, I can't find it. But thank you for your time trying to help me! I just found out about contests and I was wondering if any contests we're going to happen soon! (Sorry, contests really get me excited.)

Honestly I do not know about any of the contests; I have only been using the app for one week by now and all I found out about it was done by working full-time on animation jobs.


Check 0:13 here, the thumbnail even shows the rotation handle at the top of the square :) - I hope that helps, if not I'll try to cover it in a tutorial!
