Rotating the intermediate objects in a blend

You can rotate the intermediate objects in a blend as they progress between the start and end objects. By default, objects are attached to the path by their centers of rotation. You can change the default by looping the intermediate objects to rotate them halfway between the start and end objects' centers of rotation.

From top to bottom: a direct blend with no rotation, with a 180-degree rotation, and with a 180-degree rotation and the Loop button enabled.
