Hi, I have a question about Images. Is there a way to make an image trace/follow a line? If so, can you please explain on how to do it? I want know how to make the image trace a line from point A to point B.

Or you meant follow complex line like tower defense, with all of that curves?

direction of line: D=|B-A|
parameterize:  F(t) =Dt+A
where 't' is on [0,1]

I meant more of, just following a straight line.

Just set the y to a number and never change the y, but every update add to the x of the image.

If you want it to go up add to the y instead of the x.
Sorry if any spelling mistakes I'm on my phone

Never change X -> vertical move.
Never change Y -> horizontal move.

Yeah I think he means any line not just vertical/horiz lines.

Yea, that's what I was asking for. I understand how to make Vert and Horiz lines, just wondering how to make an image follow a line that has a certain amount of degrees to it.
