Make Path Visible


I’m making a movie were i make an object following a curved path. That part i managed to make quite easily. My problem now is that i would like the path to be visible on render window. Is it possible to do it? if not, any suggestion on how to make it without creating a mesh around the path?

Thank you in advance for your help.

(I’m sorry if this isn’t the right place to post this thread, but i wasn’t sure on where to post it)

Create another curve like a circle or something and type the sceond curve’s name into the “BevOb:” field of the path (F9 - Curve and Surface tab).

wow… cool… and simple… i like it…

I managed to do it by following a friends sugestion:

  1. Create a duplicate of the path
  2. Convert the duplicate to a mesh
  3. Make a couple of extrudes in order to get a tube
  4. Apply subsurf to the tube

But your method is much simpler and elegant…
