can anyone help. I need to, in motion, have some sun rays hitting a house. can the arrows(sun rays) bend at the point of contact and bounce away. IE at the point they hit the house and continue moving , instead of just changing direction the actually bend and move away also what is the easiest way to have the arrows coming in. made in replicator ?

Yes you can bend arrows. This is how: Create a line using the Bezier or B-Spline tool. Go to the Shape tab, Style. Check the Outline checkbox. Set Start cap to Arrow. You then can adjust the Arrow head. Then go the the Geometry tab. Set Control Point keyframes. bend the arrow and set more keyframes. PS, I find it easiest to have three control points. Hope this "Points" you in the right direction. Best of luck.

Thanks Stephen, that's finally given me the solution to a problem I've been trying to solve for three days!
If only there was a decent search or index facility on Motion 5 help it would have avoided all that.

I've taught you all I know, and still you know nothing.
