The Moon Orbits

Okely Dokely. Now we're going to get the moons animating on paths in staggered times just like we've done with the planets.

See if you can go through the moons just like you did with the planets, and assign path controllers to their various orbits. Once you've done that, go through and adjust their end times (shifting the end keyframe).

Here are some end key times for you to use.

Planet 3, moon - end 25
Planet 4, moon1 - end 25
Planet 4, moon2 - end 40
Planet 5, moon1 - end 40
Planet 5, moon2 - end 55
Planet 5, moon2a - end 30

To save you time (this is a lot like a cooking program, eh?) I've baked it up for you. Feel free to load Solar System 4.MAX and continue.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
