Orient an object to always face the camera.

How do you achieve forcing an object to always orient at the camera? for instance, I want to make it so a shape no matter where the camera moves, always holds its orientation to the viewer. Is this possible? Thanks!

Group your object, then aimConstraint that group to your camera. You can then use the objects transfroms to animate while still aligned to the camera.

Hope this helps.
