    Hello Guys ,

    In this tutorial we will learn how to animate a car along a curved road .

    In the scene you will see we have a path and a car placed .

    We will first draw an EP curve on top of the path so that it follows the path.

    Complete the curve .

    There should be enough points on the curve so that it looks smooth . We will now make the car run on the path .

    For that select the Car and then select the curve . Now go to Animate Menu , Motion Path and Hit the option button in front of Attach to Motion Path . You will get an option window . You can leave most of the options at default here .

    Hit Attach .

    You can fine tune the alignment of the car in the Channelbox Editor .
