I had a Problem Using the Follow CUrve Force Filed in blender 2.77.

This is the Scene:

Before Playing the Animation

The Highilighted Object is a Plane, with a particle Setting and the curve has a Follow Curve Force Field Applied.

But when I play the animation: After Playing the Animation

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to fix this?

Another Situation:

This is the Curve: Curve

The Emitter: The Emitter

But, When I play the Animation: enter image description here

Any Way to fix this?

Blend File:

  • $\begingroup$ maybe your curve is not in the good direction (the arrows along the curve line) : curve menu (in edit mode), then 'segments' and 'switch direction' $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Is it a plane spiral ? How is configured your 'curve guide' ? how is oriented the plane ? eventually upload your blend file here : blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com $\endgroup$

I found the fix.

You have to check the Path Animation in Curve's properties.
