Orient object to motion path - choppy turning

Hi Community,

I'm using motion paths to have a truck turn a corner. I've oriented the object to the motion path so the front of the truck is turning, but the effect is very choppy. In PowerPoint, I can achieve a smooth turn by adding a spin effect on the truck at the same time as the motion path, but we don't have this effect in Articulate SL3. Any suggestions? I've attached the slide.

This has been a known issue for some time, unfortunately. However, as Tom suggests in the thread below, if you use the Curve tool to draw your path, you should find the animation is much smoother:
