Connect BCC Zoom light to the movement of a spline
on Jun 26, 2010 at 7:27:33 am

I used Graffitti 5.3 to make a 3D extrusion of the map of Holland. Then I placed a BCC Light Zoom in the biggest lake.
When I animate the position and rotation of the 3D map, I would like that the BCC Zoom light follows this movement, so that this effect stays in the middle of the lake. However, what I try, the spline track and the BCC Zoom track are not connected. I even tried to plave them into a 3D container, but it still doesn't work.
What is the right way to connect the position of the BCC Zoom light to the position of the spline?

Theo,

I'm really not sure without looking at it.

If you send the media to my e-mail I'll gladly take a look.

The Light Zoom needs to be placed upstream of the transforms for it to move with the transformed map - try dragging the filter and the map into a container and then making all of the transform moves to the container and not the extruded map track.

I hope this helps.

Peter.
