1. Here's how
1.1: Create a Clip in Movie Mode. The Clip duration should be divisible by 4, for example 8 seconds, 12 seconds, 16 seconds etc.
1.2: Add an Advanced Move Effect to the Clip:
1.3: Edit the effect:
1.4: Make sure that the Max duration in the lower left corner is the same as the duration of your Clip:, for example 8 seconds:
1.5: Select the model you want to animate:
1.6: To make the first keyframe, rotate the object slightly with the Rotate tool, then rotate it back to the start:
1.7: Move the Timeline slider forward by, say, 2 seconds, and rotate the object 90 degrees to add a new keyframe. Repeat this step until the model has rotated by the desired amount:
1.8: Below is an example of an 8 second Clip in which each keyframe adds 90 degrees to the heading of the car every 2 seconds:
1.9: If you want the animation to start earlier or later than at frame 0 of the Clip, please adjust the Time Offset slider in the Advanced Move Effect. Set the slider value to a negative value if you want the animation to start later, and to a positive value if you want it to start earlier:
2. Multiple objects turntable:
To create a turntable with multiple objects that all need to be rotated at the same time.
2.1: First, select all objects and make a Group that you want to be part of the turntable animation.

2.2: Then create the animation using the Advanced Move Effect as per section 1 above.
Note: There is a limit of 1999 objects per selection. If you need to include more than that, then add further selections to the Group in batches.
