View Full Version : More advanced Motion Path Clone?

High, I am wondering, having used motion path clone to duplicate a cube several thousand times in order to visualize data from a engineering simulator, is there a motion path clone that would also be able to take into account scaling and rotation parameters in the motion path file?

I mean, if you used motion path clone on a line of trees you might want to change the scale of the trees as you went along, but the stock motion path clone doesn't pay any attention to the scaling or rotation data.

Anybody have any ideas on this? Thanks for any help...

LW used to be able to move, scale, rotate motion paths from any keyframe but that feature was removed. Try parented to a null and using that to rotate, move, scale.

I was actually refering to the 'motion path clone' in modeler, where you duplicate objects according to the X,Y,Z points in a motion path
