Hello, I am wondering if there is a pretty simple way in Motion to create an arrow that "grows" along a path.
I want to show an arrow grow on an incline of a graph.

This is where Motion really shines. This is super easy.

Create a Bezier line. Go to the Shape, Style tab. Click on the Outline check box. Increase the Width to taste. Set the Start or End Cap to Arrow. You can adjust the arrow head by adjusting the Arrow Length or Arrow Width. Add a Write on Behavior and your arrow grows. Hope this helps and best of luck.
