I made these disks connected with lines objects

At first IMG. Right side object's looks is what I want but I have problem with animation

looks pretty but I can't makes them follows to spline

And left one is what I want to do. I applied Align to Spline tag to disk so I can keyframe it looks like branch growing.

But disks are not target to camera...

Any ideas to solving this animation?

Try selecting your Cloner, then adding a Target Effector, pull the Target Effector around the viewport and the Clones should rotate to face it.

    Yes I did that way to right side object...

    but this way, problem is can't make the disk cloner to follow the spline.

    Left one is I make disk to align to spline and keyframe it than put in a null together and put it in cloner.

    and this way can't apply target effector because every cloned objects are being orient to camera..

    OK, I've tried a slightly differnet approach.

    Disks and spline are in two seprarate clone objects.

    The Disks use a Rail spline to set the their rotation.

    The cloners both set to  Object Mode and clone onto two seprate Cirlce splines.

    Some Xpresso sets up the rest.

     

    Scene file is attached.
