Hey everyone,

A last minute change has left me a bit stumped, hoping for some assistance. I have 50 objects that form a very specific pattern (arrow) that need to travel around a circle spline, imagine the recycle symbol spinning around the z axis. They also need to fly in organically, then swarm to form this very specific pattern/alignment. I was using spline effectors with falloff to have the cloned objects fill the shape/volume of the arrow. Now, they have to form a pattern. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You have the shape but the objects are not flying there?

Hey Brian,

I think I may have found a solution. Picture an arrow filled with 50 objects but in a grid like pattern, five rows of twenty. I drew an arrow spline and added a bunch of vertices where each cloned ball needs to appear. For the tip of the arrow, I have a second cloner setup in a pyramid shape with three vertices. Both clones are set to object clone onto the combined arrow spline with a follow spline tag....which then in conjunction with a spline wrap, spins them around the circle....whew! Haha.
