In this article, I will show you 6 steps to move objects on a path in Blender 2.7. Let's get started.
Step 1: First, you need to add a new sphere by selecting Add (item 1) » Mesh (item 2) » Select UV Sphere (item 3)
Step 2: Next, you need to add a new curve (circle) as a path to move the sphere on by selecting Add (item 1) » Curve (item 2) » Circle (item 3).
You will see a new circle in item 4.
Bước 3: Then, you press the A key to deselect the circle.
Step 4: You select both the sphere and the circle. But, you need to select the sphere first (item 1). Then, you select the circle (item 2)
Step 5: Press Ctrl + P » Select Follow Path
You will see the straight line (dashed line) which links the sphere with the circle:
Step 6: Click on the icon to see the result
After pressed the combination keys Ctrl + P , you don't see the Follow Path function in the Set Parent To list:
You only see another list into the Set Parent To:
Because your order is wrong. You need to select the sphere instead of the circle first. Please come back to the Step 4.
