    Need help again

    Hi all, I can't for the life of me remember how one make an object floor a curve path in layout. For instance a car following a roller coaster track. I know you make a curve, and save it out of modeler with path to motion plug in, but then what? How do you link the object to the curve path, and make it follow?

    If you're saving out an actual .mot file just do a File>Load Motion on your object. Or load the curve model into Layout and use the Curve Constraint motion modifier on your car.

    I just made a curve in modeler and saved a path to motion file. Now I don't know what to do with it. Funny thing is I did this about 3 years ago.
