Path Sliding

I would love to attach a file, but .blend files are apparently an invalid file type which is really stupid… (I’ll go complain in the appropriate part of the forum for that in a minute!)

So here’s what I’m trying to do: have an object be deformed by a path AND ALSO slide along it in time. What I get is not correct. The deformation gets messed up I guess because the base coordinates are changing or the coordinates are being doubled up or something weird. The arrow I want to make fly across the screen isn’t following the path when it’s deformed and when it isn’t deformed it… well… isn’t what I want.

Oh gracious Blender gurus, help?

Nevermind… I took off the path follow and just moved it along Y. Problem solved. Thanks a lot for the replies :mad:
