Question from satisfied user

I make educational videos and am encouraged that Avogadro will be helpful. I am putting simple models against a green background and then the chromakey filter will give me greenscreen effect. I am pretty excited.
I need very good control of the model, for example as it turns. It has to stay stationary… X and Y coordinates on the canvas would work, I think. If I could put the center of the model (simple stuff like diethyl ether) in the exact center, then any turn should leave the model in the center.
I am starting to get proficient with this aspect of Avogadro, but am not succeeding with this aspect.I like the software… John BrighamNorth Carolina

I think you want to use the AutoRotate tool. You can open a model, set an X
and Y rotation (or as you want) and then click “start.” You can then do
what you want until you’re done with the video.
