Animation on a path and exploding objects
on Aug 8, 2008 at 3:19:54 pm


I am experimenting with Maya. What I am trying to do is create an animation of two separate objects that basically fly around a little,
then crash together and explode. I have discovered the "animation on a path feature". Very cool. Now I need to learn how to do the exploding.
Actually, I would like the explosion to look like breaking glass.

Any tutorials on something like this?

Thanks,

Ray

So I'm playing with animation on a path. I can get the object to follow the path but the object is facing the wrong way. I want the front of the object to always be aligned with the path.

How?

Thanks

Ray

select the object hit ctrl+a in the attribute editor find the motionpath tab, change the front axis and Up axis to fit your needs
