I am new to Blender (version 2.62) and am after help with a problem I have gotten stuck on.
I am wanting to simulate a planet orbiting the Sun. To keep it simple, I am using a UV sphere as the ‘planet’ (with no detail added at this stage) and have placed a circle at the centre of the animation. I have been trying to work out how to turn the circle into a path so that I can make the UV sphere move around the circle/path so that it looks like it is a planet orbiting a star (which I will add later).
I have been looking on the web in the Blender 2.6 on-line manual and have found written instructions on how to turn a circle into a path there. However, regardless of if I am object mode or edit mode, I can’t find part of the panel the instructions refer to.
I would really appreciate some help with this.
