hi e-body,

need help with following problem (please see Zip file).

the arrow acts strange when passing some key points.
I could not manage that, nothing seem to work
to get the arrow follow and align the path correctly.

I tried to use the Motion Option > Controllers and Limits > Align to Path function
but I get even more strange result.

All help appreciated

Cheers

You'll always have trouble when you try to loop in the Y axis. Gimble. Can you build it so it is on the x z plane? might help. and check here if you haven't.

You can build it on the x z plane, and then tip the camera if you want it on the y. I've done that in the past.

Well, thanks for all the tips and help.
I appreciate it very much.

However, it is a quite limitation to not could make free movements but have to think what axis the object is in.
This sounds/is a little cheap when it takes the software of LW class, don't you agree?
