Please I need some help, I havenīt used dynamics much, so i donīt really know the best way to do this: I need to make a great number of arrows follow a path. I tried to make a curve flow effect with instanced geometry. This looks alright but the instances are always facing the same direction. Can I get the instances (the arrows) to follow the tangent of the curve? Or is there another, better way to do it?

Thanks

Set the aim to worldVelocity in instancer. This will make your arrows X axis to aim in the direction of movement.
