I’ve got the path set up, and constrained the camera to it, but it’s not moving. I’d eventually like to focus the camera on an empty, but I won’t know where to put the empty in time until the camera’s moving along the path. It was working, and now it isn’t. I don’t know what I did wrong. I’d love to attach the file for anyone to look at, but it fails to upload every time I try. Is 14 MB too big? Any suggestions?
Well, I’ve gotten the path to work, but now the camera flips wildly in places along the path where I have it damping to a constraint. I don’t want any y-axis rotation anywhere in my setup; how do I get it to stay level? I couldn’t attach the file here, so I had to do it from PasteAll.org:
Replace the “Damped Track” constraint with a “TrackTo” constraint. (To: -Z, Up: Y, World Space <–> World Space)
That’s the only thing that works here.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I was running out of hair to pull out.
Those settings are how I can stop the Y-axis from moving in other scenes too?
I can’t say for sure without seeing the other scenes but if they also have a camera on a path looking at an empty or another object, then yes, the “TrackTo” constraint with the same parameters will prevent the camera from rolling sideways.
