    is there a way to center the pivot of all highlighted Actors-Objects at the same time?
    I got too many actors to do it for each manually.
    Hi MarlinAtRevis3d, to set pivot to center for all selected actors, just make sure "Auto Save" is checked, and "Group Mode" is NOT checked, then click the sphere highlighted in picture.

    When "Group Mode" is checked, Pivot Tool will cheat all selected actors as one group and set pivot base on the group. When it's off, Pivot Tool will set pivot for each actor individually.

    You can achieve that with "Freeze Rotation", here'a video to show the process:

    The process would be:

    1. Rotate the mesh to match desired local mesh pivot to world axis
    2. Check "Freeze Rotation", then "Bake" to bake the changes back to static mesh
    3. Since the mesh pivot is changed, you might need to update rotations of actors referencing this mesh

    I just bought this tool, and I have a question.

    I am working with F-22 Model (fighter jet). All of my object axes (pivot points) are actually exactly where they need to be on the plane's various pieces - flaps, foils, canopy, etc in Cinema 4D. For reasons I don't understand, FBX exports out of Cinema 4D always put the pivot point for every object at world 0,0,0. So, this plugin seems like just the thing to restore this plane to a proper animate-able state.

    However, while repositioning the pivot point with this plugin is fast and intuitive, I see no manner by which I can adjust the orientation of the pivot point. If I want to rotate the flaps of the plane, I need an axis to be perpendicular to the actual geo. Is this something I can accomplish with this tool?

    In other words, I need this:

    But what I have right now after using your tool is this:
    Click image for larger version

    Definitely an improvement over being at world 0, but not quite there yet.

    If your plugin can't do this, I formally request the feature.

    I posted the reply on itch.io. As it might also helps anyone has same question, I quote the answer below:

    When "Group Mode" is off, all actors' pivot will be set individually.

    When "Group Mode" is on, then all actors' pivot will be set as a whole group.

    Here's a short video to showcase the differences.
