Modeling a Roller Coaster Rail

Hi guys! I seem to have a hit a wall with this. You see I followed this forum: Motion Path Weirdness to solve the issue with the twistings when setting something to a motion path. Well it solved my problem but now I have an even weirder problem. My animation snapshot to make the rails go haywire for no reason.



Also when I do an animation Sweep it just goes all over the place. Any solution on this? Or any other way to model out your own roller coaster ride?

Hey man,

Are you just trying to extrude a shape along a curve?

Did you try something like this?

Hi AJ,

nope wasn't trying to do that. I was trying to complete the railings by using Animation Snapshot. I have a path for how the roller coaster should go.

I followed the quick tutorial here: The Rollercoaster Problem
