i try to use the Railclone "Animate along Path" Macro for Car animation. The idea is to place a single car in a first Railclone object to generate a a car that travelling foreward and backward to simulate different speed of each single car. After i take this Railclone object in a second line-of-cars Railclone object. This line of cars is used on a third RC to animate the line of cars on a spline. Sounds complicated? Yes it is...
Two problems appears:
- sometimes the RC animation doesn't work at rendertime. It's visible in the viewport but won't move while rendering.
- The nested travelling car don't work in the pipeline. In my opinion this is important because the animation looks very uniform, more like a train than a line of single driven cars.
It would be great if it's possible to get Railclone do this job.
