Attach to Motion Path EP Curve

Hello guys

I'm pretty new to Maya and I got a problem
I made a models (of space ships (very simple) and I'm trying to animate it with a EP Curve
So first make EP Curve and than Attach it to Motion Path. Now it is pretty much moving sidewards or backwards
How can I fix this?

Grtz. Thomas

select the "motionPath" tab in the attribute editor. Make sure the "Follow" checkbox is on. Set "World Up Type" dropdown to "Vector". The in three input boxes directly below that you can tell maya which way you want to point up. If you type 1 in the first box and 0 in the others your objects "up" will be along the X axis. Often this will be sideways...1 in the Y (2nd box) and 0 in the other two will usually get you pointing in the correct direction. You can also use -1 to flip around if you are backawards. Just make sure you have only one box with 1 and the other two with 0.
