So I’ve wanted to do an animation involving the infamous dog fighting maneuver, The Rolling Scissors, for a while now.
However, I’m not sure how to keep it from looking flat. The planes have to essentially meet in the middle (“pass closely”) on every pass.
Is it really that flat in real life? Or are my curves wrong? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
It looks nice from the Side.
But in perspective view you can see that all the curves are pretty much aligned with a 45º plane. I bent the outer tips in a bit to try and “curve” it more, but I don’t think that really helped.
