Tracing dashed line below motion path
on May 5, 2016 at 6:15:10 pm

Hi,

I have a pre comp of a bee which I plan to animate along a motion path with rotation auto-orient enabled. What I'm looking for is a way to automatically trace a dotted line beneath where the bee has flown.

See image for what I'm trying to achieve.

Thanks in advance,

Gav

Make a duplicate of the motion path as a shape layer shape and make the stroke dotted. Add a trim paths to the shape layer and animate the trim paths end value the same as your motion path progress.

Thanks for your response. I have got this far but I was hoping for an expression that would like the creation of the dotted line to the movement of the bee comp.

How are you controlling the bee movement?
