hy all ! my problem is this: i want to have my char, a bot, move along a motion trial. no prob so far...but if i attach the char and rig to the motion path the two things (poly char & rig/charset) wont "walk along" the same way :(

the rig takes a wider angle then the char so everything gets what did I wrong ? in the help i couldnīt find anything about rigs&chars togather on one motion trial :cry: i grouped the poly char, the rig and the charsets and attached them to the trial.

please help me out, want my char animated AND moving please :cry: :cry: :cry:

thanks in advance

don't attach the geometry AND the rig..
the rig moves the geometry... so if the rig is moving the geometry, and the path animation moves the geometry.. you get double deformations...

just attach the rig to the path, that will move the geometry (thats what its for after all)...

okay, thank you very much ! how about the parts of the bot i didnīt rig like itīs body ? will it follow after the rig without any problems ?

what ever you are gonna animate the body with (or a parent of) should be on the path.

you really need to step back and understand, exactly what you are doing, why you are doing it, and what is controlling/moving what in you scene..
