Hi guys

Im having a pronlem animating a deformer along a path. I have a taper deformer animating around the path of a circle however when tangential is applied the deformer flips axis and back when rotating over 180 degrees. I have given a link to my example scene.

any help would be great!
Thanks
Al

Gimbal lock, add another spline (a copy of the Circle) leave it in exactly the same place, make it's radius a bit bigger and use it as the Rail Spline in the Align To Spline Expression.
