disable follow path?
« on: August 24, 2022, 01:32:38 PM »
Hi, Im trying to recreate a particular artwork.
I need the spheres to not rotate to follow the path, ie just stay static but have their position dictated by the path.
They should all be facing the same direction - so that I can then amend their rotation by segment so each sphere rotates on the spot a certain amount - but all in the same orientation.
Hopefully this makes sense???

Well, depending on your spline you could try adding Transform Operator to the Segment node, and under Deform tab try:
- Bend off
- Slice off
- Stepped on
- Maybe Slope

You can also check Override Banking

changed orientation of RC as suggested elsewhere, but the spheres flip direction at parts of the spline..
