I watched William's video on using cyclist a while ago, but didn't manage to make anything good.. :cursin: ...until now. I watched it again, pausing every now an then while setting my own thing up in Layout.

Now when I say my own thing, I mean a model I bought from Mesh Factory and set up for easier animating with Cyclist.

The only way I could get the animation small enough (byte wise) was to encode it with divx.

Can you use Rapidshare?

That site you used sent me to jamster before I could download. Unless it is suppose to be a fake file?

Yep I love cyclist, don't forget their is a also a cyclist in your modifier tab in the graph editor, that lets you use anything you can envelope with cyclist as well. It makes it super easy to set up complex animations all controled via one null.

is much better than rapidshare... no wait time and a huge upload limit... no spam ads either... for next time...
