  • Scale: It allows us to define how large or small an object is. In our example, our object is too big and thus we need to scale the object down. We will learn how to do that shortly.
  • Rotation: It defines how an object is orientated or posed. We will use both terms interchangeably. Rotation is a bit more complex, and we won't worry about it for this example.
