    Problems with object following a motion path

    I wonder if somebody could help me please. I’ve got a vehicle that I want to travel around a sphere. I’ve created a motion path round the sphere but when the vehicle follows the path it flips and rotates all over the place. I’ve tried changing the from axis and up axis as well as checking and unchecking the follow box but nothing seems to help it follow the path normally all the way. I don’t really want to have to adjust it manually so didn’t know if there’s was anything I could do to make it follow the path properly/realistically?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I made a small test scene of an object travelling 'East' around a sphere's equator.

    On the motionPath1 node I have World Up Type as Scene Up, Front Axis as Y and Up Axis as Z. I had to adjust Side Twist to 90 to make the object point forwards as it travelled.

    Things could be different there as your object orientations might not be the same, try adjusting the Front/Up/Side Twist to suit
    There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
