I need to make an animation of a school of fish swimming. I have created the line that will be the path and a Path Follow space warp and selected the line for the Pick Shape Object. Then I created a PArray particle system and a cylinder with 0 height as the emitter.
In the particle type rollout, I chose the option Instanced Geometry. And under Instancing parameters, I picked the fish object.
When I play the animation, the fish are generated fine but they are not oriented right. The fish move along the path but they are not looking into the travelling direction.
I created a dummy and assigned a path position controller to it under the motion tab. I also checked the follow box. Then I linked the fish object to the dummy. But, when I play the animation, the fish are still not facing the travelling direction.
How do I correct this?
