View Full Version : motion to path
02-18-2004, 08:56 PM
Does anyone know of a quick way to convert a motion in layout into a path (rail etc...) in modeler? I looked on flay for a plugin but had no luck.

In Layout, have the object with the motion selected and go to File>Save>Save Motion. Then in Modeler use Multiply>(Motion)Path Extrude on a one-point-spline (, or a one-point-polygon if you want a polychain). Then use Construct>Additionals>LW_Polys2Curve, followed by Weld Polygons to make it all one spline.

You are the king buddy, thanks a lot. I knew that I could do it in Lightwave but just couldn't find the button!
