If ONLY ONE of the many tutorials I have watched while trying to learn how to have a camera follow along a path had bothered to mention keyframing the “Evaluation” value in the curve/path properties panel, it would have been great. I guess the authors of these videos and/or test tutorials assume that we learners know some things so they don’t bother to mention them. While I certainly DO appreciate the efforts of all those who make these tutorials for those of us who are learning to use Blender, there are many inconsistencies among the tutorials, and actually some downright errors, that it makes it hard to learn things. And there are also different approaches to creating the same things, not that any of them are “wrong”, but that can add to the confusion. But I do appreciate the efforts made by others and I will continue to watch tutorials to learn more. At least I know how to make my camera(s) (or any object) follow a path.
There is one thing I doubt that I will EVER be able to do though, and that is rigging. I have tried it many times, but it’s just too complex, and mine NEVER work. But what I CAN do with Blender is very satisfying. And Blender is free…so how great is that?
