I'm making this animation where a spinning top is spelling out letters of a word. I made the path in illustrator, as it's quite complicated. Importing worked without a problem, and I actually got my object to follow the path! Pretty nifty for a noob, hey?

Anyway, the problem is, the object is following the path in the wrong direction! How do I fix this? I don't just want to swap the keyframes around, as that's not proper.

Thanks!

go into the motion panel for your object. mess around with the settings. check/uncheck the follow tab.also the "along path" option, its probly reversed. at the beginning of your animation should be set to the beginning of your path (default would be 0.) and at the end would be 100. Hope that helps
