Hello all,
I have a scene with a dummy object having a world space pathdeform modifier applied to it. Now using the percent spinner I can move the dummy on the path. Then i link a box to the dummy object so that i can make the box follow the dummy on the path but it does not follow the dummy????

What i want to do is to some how make the box follow the dummy on the path. How can i do this?I tried to get the dummy's position and rotation on the path but it always returns the position and rotation of the dummy when it was created.

How can i get the dummy's position and orientation on the path and make the box position and orient the same way??? Any link reference would be appreciated.
Thanks
Mobeen

This should work, you don't need to script it

no it does not work b/c the dummy object does not have any vertices and the worldspacepath deform modifies vertices. I got this answer from the discreet forum.
