I created an animation in Blender, as shown below (somehow the animation is not showing so this is the link to see the animation: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/9a8tnc0gb75nm3iwcttjo/0001-0120.mkv?rlkey=1rhuw36uo7yjsj6s6dak38o6v&dl=0)

enter image description here

To be honest, I created this using the trial-and-error method so that, the plane shown in the video could follow a path from top to bottom along the z-axis. However, I would like to know the real concept behind rotating the path element in Blender so, I could create this animation in blender without going for the trial-and-error method.

I could only rotate the path as shown in the screenshot below,

but can't make it rotate as I have done with the trial-and-error method. I have attached the screenshots below to show the trial-and-error rotation values I entered to create the animation.

Any thoughts would be great to help me understand the rotation of NurbsPath in Blender.

    $\begingroup$ pls do not link animations to your dropbox here, because if you delete them, your question is worthless. Instead convert it to a gif and just add it to your question. thx. Same with your images, just paste them in the question. thx. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris: it not only retains the question content but makes it easy for users to see the post content too. that's good. however I couldn't get my gif to be animated although it works in my system. any clues why this happens? I converted my animation file (in .mkv format) to gif using Zamzar. $\endgroup$

you could e.g. use geometry nodes to do this. So with this node setup here:

you will get this:

  • $\begingroup$ To be honest I couldn't understand how the Geometry node feature works in Blender. I may have to read more about this. $\endgroup$
