In Mathematica, does anyone have a way to "spin" a point cloud made visible with

The current animation tools in Mathematica are just too unweildy.

Many statistical packages (e.g., Systat, S-Plus) let a user spin a 3D point
cloud (and the axes) to look at them from different points of view. These
software packages let the point cloud spin smoothly or in steps, as the
user desires. The user can also "lasso" points to identify them for more
detailed study.

Any thoughts??

many thanks
