Path and orbit. help

Post by KMBoggs »

I added a circle and skewed it to an ellipse. Now what I want to do is make the edge of the ellipse a path and make an object follow it. How do I make the path and how do I have the object follow it?

Path orbit

Hi,

I must warn you that I am a dreaded "noob".
If no one else can help you I believe the answer lies, somehow, with the "Track To" constraint.

thanks bro i figured out you can parent the object to the path and have the it follow path or add a constraint to follow the path like you said and turn the influence down to 0.
