I have a nurbs path setup and my camera operates following the path. I can get it to track an empty, but I want it to change between a couple of empties as it progresses down the path.

Is there a way to do this using the timeline?

  • $\begingroup$ Don't think it can be done in Timeline, only Camera can be activated in a way like this. But you can add as many Tracking constraints as Empties you got, and then animate Influence value to switch between them. For first empty it will be 1 to 0 value and 0 to 1 for second. $\endgroup$ – Serge L Jan 5 '18 at 1:01
  • $\begingroup$ I see what you mean, thats close. But how would I change the influence as it moves down the path? Key frames? Sorry I am very new to this. $\endgroup$ – Antonio Bandito Jan 5 '18 at 1:20

You don't "change" camera targets, but you can have several Track-To constraints in the same object with different influence values at any given time.

Just keyframe the Influence parameter over the course of the animation so it points where you want at the correct moment.
