Rotating Coin

Hello,

Could someone help me with this.

I have a coin I modeled and it follows a path. I could do that fine. My problem is I want it to look like it is rolling. Is there an easy way, or not so easy, to do this effect. In Flash you just specify how many times you want it to rotate along the tween. I can’t figure it out in Blender. Please help.

Thanks.

Hello leifishy!

Are you familiar with KeyFrame-Animation? If you achieved your coin to follow a path you got a IPO-Curve in the IPO-Window for xyz-LOC, you can add an other IPO-Curve with ROT-component; this makes your coin rotate.
