I want to move an object (like a camera) along a path (nurbs circle). Using the follow path constraint, I was able to. However, its very unintuitive to me as I follow a procedural method to make it work. So, in my first working case, II have to have the constrainted object on the world origin before targetting the path to follow, then have to use “-Z” button for “forward” and “Y” drop-down option for “Up”. And, voila, I hit spacebar, and it works.
Edit: Now, I want to understand what I’ve been doing mechanically. So, my question(s): Why does it work this way? What is “forward” and “up” mean?
