I am only aware of horizontal and vertical tilt.
To what exactly are you referring?

Like Mona, I've never heard of "center" tilt. The tilt feature comes in two flavors at this time: horizontal and vertical

Look here for more information on the tilt feature in Gold:

It will probably answer your question...

Hello Bigharold,

If what you're describing as "playing with the center tilt" is actually the "ROTATE" setting, that's not a tilt feature. All it does is make an image spin. Changing the rotation center doesn't make it tilt either. :roll:

Tilt-Vertical, Tilt-Horizontal, and Rotation are all a form of the same thing: a circular motion around a different axis. Rotation is not called 'tilt-Center' because it was the first form of rotation we were given and I doubt Photodex was ever contemplating any other rotation type motion.

The function "Rotation" rotates the layer around what can be called a Z-Axis -- an imaginary line which extends into and out of the screen perpendicular to the plane of the screen.

The function "Tilt-Horizontal" rotates the layer around what can be called the Y-Axis -- an imaginary line which extends up and down the screen, perpendicular to the horizontal plane and to the Z-axis plane

The function "Tilt-Vertical" rotates the layer around what can be called the X-Axis -- an imaginary line which extends to the screens' left and right, perpendicular to the vertical and to the Y-axis plane.

All of these rotation motions are mutually perpendicular to each other.

PS I guess I should say that "0" (the origin) in the graphic is the "center of rotation" ... or the location on the axis around which the circular motion occurs.

In addition to what Dale says, you can move the center of rotation in the image. I thought you could drag it, but seemed to have lost that part of the incantation - you can change the center of rotation in the dialog box at the bottom of the "Effects" page for a slide with 0,0 being the center of the image.

Mikey, did you ever notice that the rotation direction on the X-Axis is 180-deg out from convention? How, they didn't catch that before they released it is kind of a surprise ... and by the time someone mentioned it to them ... it was way too late to do anything about it.

Yeah, part of life seems to be getting used to the fact that some things just have left hand threads :lol:
That is why I have a post-it note above my monitor with rotation marked on it and +/-
