Default Motion Path Question

Hi

I am making an animation of a static object and the camera aiming on it while it moves along a spiral motion path.

Here is an example of what I am doing.

I want the aim of the camera to be fixed at the object.

When the camera moves along the path, the aim moves with it and it doesn't look at the object.

How can I do to keep the camera aiming the object withouth moving its aim?

in the motion path options, turn off "Follow." Then you can constrain the camera's aim to your object.
