Animator Follow Path

Postby Mayoketchup » Mon Mar 04, 2019 3:02 pm

Hello
I'm trying to create an animation where an object follows a path. I'm using Fredo6's animator but I can't select a path after I selected the object. Am I doing something wrong ? I'm using SU 2018 pro.

Make sure the path are native Sketchup curves. Then they should be selectable from Animator Follow Path tool.

Hey Fredo

I noticed it doesn't work with native lines only with freehand and arcs.
I downloaded your bezier spline plugin and now it works perfect with these curves :thumb: .


Kind regards

To create a Sketchup curve out of a sequence of edges, you need a Plugin, as this is (still) not provided by SketchUp in native, even in 2019!

The most popular plugin is TIG Weld. You have also some others: one by Eneroth3 and also Curvizard.
