    Hope you’re doing well!

    I’m trying to animate a ball rolling on a surface which would follow a formula spline, however,
    in the middle of the curve it intersects with the spline, even though the center spline of the ball as well as the surfaces are identical.

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks a million!

    When you say the surfaces are identical, what do you mean? Are you using the same spline and just moving it up in the y axis?

    An easy way to do it would be to use dynamics and the follow position option and that would also let you add some nice random (but art directable) movement into the mix too, if that’s your thing.
