Path constraint animation too jerky
on Jul 4, 2012 at 7:08:59 am

Hello I animated a car through a city using a path constraint. I parrented a camera to car so I can film the city from inside of a car. So far so good but the result animation doesn't seem as smooth as I expected. It is quite jerky and in curves it looks especially weird it turns suddenly and kinda shakes. I tried to fix the path many times using as little vertices as possible, made them all smooth I even tried to set spline interpolation to higher numbers (I tried up to 100) but result is allways similar. Does anyone know how to fix this please? I really need much smoother motion than this. I keep getting these results every time I use path constraint. Is there maybe some additional way how to make the animation smoother?
