Default question about circling an object - 02-28-2012, 08:55 PM

Hello All,

I am doing a homework assignment that has a helicopter circling a control tower before landing. I created an extra method to make the blades spin while its moving, and seems to look ok. The only problem I have is the circle (when using "as seen by control tower" is too large. Instead of circling just the control tower, it is doing the entire base. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

have you tried adding a circle from the shapes items, and sizing it to what you need, then go to it's properties and set it's opacity to 0, then use that as your reference for the helicopter to go around

If you are stuck on a project, check out the tutorials I made here at this link:

There are lots of tutorials on it so far, including some youtube videos, check it out
