Hello, I am somewhat new to blender. I am working on a short animation and want to have a sun/moon objects rotate through the sky. I thought it would be easy to somehow constrain the objects to a circle curve and then all I would need to do is animate the curve.

Is there a way to do this? I cant figure it out. Thanks for the help.

First problem is that you're using a mesh as the path.

What you want to use is the bezier circle under the Curves menu when you press ⇧ Shift + A

Once that's done,

  • Click your moons and then ⇧ Shift click your curve
  • Press Ctrl + P and choose Follow Path.

That should do what you want
