ha! iPhone typing at a RED light.

“The object would be upside down at 180 degrees”

My bad.

The auto orient to camera works perfect, then parent to a null and using the Z rotation of the null. Copying and pasting the path as position keyframes isnt necessary unless you just want to control it with position keyframes for each layer.

I did have one issue with the script not working but it seems like its not needed as auto orient seems to do the trick once the precomps are all parented to it. I can post a test shortly once i get them all lined up on the path.

Jut dropped in some icons from an icon pack to show what i was attempting to do (wasn’t going to upload client work). This way i can turn it any direction and all the icons stay right side up and face the camera.

used auto orient to orient to spline and camera.
