So im trying to figure out this motion path animation and animating joints along the path. Now i know about just animating the offset of the curve after creating a SplineIK and all but id does this weird stuff where it slows after hitting the curve. IS there any other way to animate a joint chain along a path other than using spline IKs?
I have to put those joints on that curve and make it go from one end to the other like a roller coaster. I can get it on the curve by making the curve the base for the splineIK but when it rounds the bend it slows down even though in the graph editor for the movement its a linear climb no curving.
Now is there another way for me to animate this without doing the splineIK option and still get it to round the cure like its supposed to? Im trying to make it so that it uses the curve as a motion path but it wont do that if i make the curve the base for the splineIK for the joints.
well i did which is animating the offset which will move the joints from one end to the other but when it rounds the curve it automatically slows down and i don't know why. I checked the graph editor and the motion path line was linear no curving so i don't know why its slowing down when it rounds the curve.
