Airplane Ext Autonomous mode problem

Post by Liberator » Tue Aug 31, 2010 4:09 pm

Hi Guys,

First post from me. Sorry it's a problem :)

I'm trying to animate an aircraft flying through a canyon using Airplane Extended. I've drawn a spline following the course of the canyon and applied an animation path constraint to the target mesh (I'm using 3DS Max 2011).

The target is following the spline just fine but I can't get the plane to follow the target in Autonomous mode. No matter what I choose (Fighter Jet, Autonomous Spitfire) I seem to get the same result - As soon as I hit Record to start the simulation, the aircraft flies off in the opposite direction to the target :?

I'm scratching my head here trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Anyone have any ideas or experienced something similar?

Cheers,

Andy

Did you check the Autonomous box in the configuration for the Airplane Extended?
