Daryl BoothHELP PLEASE! animating along path..

Hi,

I am up against the clock for a client and new to 3ds.

I have produced a bird which I want to move along a path that moves up and included curves etc.

I have married up the object to the path and it moves along great. But for the life of me I cannot find a way to animate banking and have it facing along the path in the direction it will follow.

Have tried the help files but it does not seem clear what to do and how to achieve it.

Any help appreciated greatly..

Have you tried using a dummy object and binding the bird to the dummy?

Hi,

I got round it my manually setting rotation keyframes along the path. Annoyingly I saw the dummy object solution (VideoCopilot) after the job was finished. Oh well you live and learn...

Thanks for the response Jon.
