Going to make things move in a linear fashion, wan't to add subtle fluctuation off path
show user profile  jakeywunder
So I have three kunai knives (This is my first ever erm.. file? that I'm doing on 3ds max, it's totally noob, I'm totally noob, I know how to do hardly anything D:) and I want them to go in the same direction, but side by side..ish. Anyway, I'm about to learn how to create motion in a video and whatnot, but I wanted to know, is there a way to say, "This Kunai Knife will go from point a to point b, but waver slightly off the path, ever-so-slightly (to create a thrown-through-wind effect)" without me having to manually put all the subtle wavers in myself?

I hope this makes sense, if not I will elaborate more

As I said I'm a tooootal noob. So any instructions you may give me, please treat me as though I've done /vvveeeeerrrryyy/ little on 3ds max :x

Animate a dummy from A to B, align the knife to the dummy and link it to it, add a noise controller to the knife's position (and/or rotation) track, adjust frequency and XYZ strengths.

@James: there's a kid next door just like this one :)

Yep. Same one. With a bunch of candy bar wrappers in his pockets.
