Deciduous trees 24 orientation

Dave Brach

I am trying to rotate the deciduous trees 24 object exactly how I want it, but there seems to be some kind of automatic orientation built into the object where it snaps to certain angles.  Is there a way to control this or turn it off?  (I am actually trying to place 2 objects on top of each other at 90°, but can't get it to work)

Those 'billboard' type trees are set to rotate to face the camera.

So every time you re-build in 3D or do a render (or fly-through), the object will turn automatically to face the camera.

So you should only ever need to place one.

They won't turn as you rotate in 3D - you have to rebuild and regenerate the view.
