interpolation point's routes.

So, recently, I was allowed to edit an old map from another author. It uses moving cameras and interpolation points to make a few scenes. Well, my way of using these interpolation things was to make the path with them, I mean, if I want the camera to make a loop, or recoil, i'd use various interpolation points to actually create the path. However, in this map, the author seems to get the path to have a shape without having to use new points for each trajetory change. Please, take a look at the images:


Spoiler:


He has made curves, loops and recoils without using new points for each trajetory change. The said author could not remember how he has done this, so it hapened me to ask here.

So, uh, how do I make these wird trajetories?

Thanks in advance.

Check out the third parameter for PathFollower actors: Classes:PathFollower.

As far as I know, those options will not result in the kinds of loops and "detours" that seem to be evident in Ravick's screenshots.

Ravick, are you confident that your screenshots accurately reflect the path of the moving camera?

Yes, I've made a small 'excerpt' of a part od the map (the very first screeshot from my previous post) after the original author allows me:
