Motion Path question
on Jun 11, 2009 at 12:40:01 pm

Hi

I'm trying to get a shape (that came from Illustrator) to act as an animation path. The path is OK, as I can apply shapestyles like light to it. I would like to use that (or any shape) as a motionpath for particles, but somehow I cannot get that done. I might be poking at the wrong behaviours, so if anyone can point me in the right direction...


Thanks!
Jay

Howdy,

If you want your emitter to move along the path, just apply the Motion Path behavior to the emitter, set the Motion Path's Path Type to 'Geometry' and drag-and-drop the shape into the image-well that appears in the Inspector or HUD.

@Jim Johnson

That's it, thanks!

I was trying too hard to get it done, I guess, and completely ignored path type, thinking the problem would lie elsewhere....

Thanks!
