align object with curve between A and B
show user profile  Scheidema
I want to Animate one object from A to B. When this is a straight line I would set 2 dummy's for the A and B location. Then Use align tool to place it with record on.
I would like to do the same thing only then with a curve between A and B.
Is it possible to align with a curve in between. I tried with path follow only this doesnt give the right position back when using the Align tool.

Kind regards

It should be possible to align with a curve in between. Do you have a screenshot of what you're trying to do?

I do not know how to put a image on. here is a example screenshot

It is a path with 2 points and one helper.
the helper is with path constraint.
If i want to align the helper from the fist point to the second point the helper is not going to stand on the second point helper.
I think it is looking at the path length only with align tool it is not following the path (only length off path in calc not the position)
fairly simple to setup easy to tryout.

Kind regards
