Re: Vector Deform along path by Edward Wu on Mar 15, 2012 at 12:00:48 am
You can pull off that effect using 3D Serpentine. To do this, create the path of the rollercoaster in After Effects using a small Solid Layer. Keyframe the position to create the path. Then, apply 3D Serpentine to a Comp-Sized Solid and set the path layer as the extrude path. This will create the 3D path. You can then set the body to Line, and you will get a thin strip. By adding an image with the transparent background and the music notes as the Body map, you should be able to pull off the effect you're going for.
