When I use the function Follow Path with any object it separates a lot by marking a blue dashed line and I have to use the command Alt + G to get into path. Does anyone know why this happens to me?

When I directly use the command Ctrl + P > Follow Path I don't have this problem. I use version 3.1.2

You describe 2 ways to follow path:

  • If you parent the object to the curve with the Follow Path option, the object will begin its animation at the position it was when you parented

  • If you use the Follow Path constraint, the first vertex of the curve will be like the new world center of the object, so the object will be as far from this vertex as it is from the center of the scene when you've given it the constraint. So if you want the object to be at the same location as the first vertex you need to bring back the object at the center of the scene with an AltG and it will jump at the vertex position.
