Some issues with path following

I’m kind of new to Blender, and I’m finally beginning to get to grips with it, but I’m having a few issues with animating a character. I’ve got the mesh finished, rigged it properly, and got a decent walkcycle going with offset moving him forwards nicely. However, I can’t seem to get the ‘follow path’ constraint to work right. I added the path and set up the constraint, but the character doesn’t follow it. There’s a slight sideways movement, but not much. I’ve checked everything I can think of - axes are set correctly, influence is set to full, etc - but I can’t figure it out. What am I doing wrong?

Hi random_factor,

I think you are looking in the wrong place to accomplish what you want to do. I just answered this in another thread, by referring them to another thread. Please see this thread…

Hope it helps!
