There are many times when you'll need to animate objects in very specific paths, and you can use animation paths to do that. So let's take a look at how to attach an object to a path for animation. Now in order to do this, we need to first create an animation path. Now this is called a curve. And we really haven't dealt too much with curves, but we can find them under Curve > Path. And once we have that, we can zoom in on it, and you'll see it's basically a Nurbs type of curve.

Now we can edit this curve by going into Edit mode. You'll notice we have a lot of little chunks there, but you'll see that we have individual vertices here. And just by pushing and pulling those vertices, we can reshape that curve. So if wanted to, I can move this really wherever I want. In fact, if I wanted to, I can go into my Quad view and that might make it a little bit easier to edit. So as you can see here in my top ortho view, we can go ahead and create a nice curve for this o...
