Circle Trim Path Issue
on Feb 9, 2018 at 4:06:00 pm

Hoping someone can help me with this, I've never had this issue before and I cannot figure out what the problem is.

I am animating a circle trim path around a number. Everything is fine until it gets about 75% around and then it glitches. I am attaching a couple screen shots.

Here's a before:


Here's an after:


Thanks in advance!

did you by any chance start with a parametric shape and then converted to bezier by right click convert to bezier path? because if so this procedure is buggy for animation unless you re-set the first vertex.

highlight the path, see where the first vertex is (it has a square box)

then select just that vertex and right click->mask and shape path>set first vertex.

I used a shape layer with no fill and a stroke only. I tried what you suggested and it's grayed out in my menu.

Do you see the path property? Make sure just that vertex is selected.

This is very likely a cache issue. Edit>Purge>All Memory & Cache to see if it helps. If not, then restart AE.

That was my first instinct, didn't work.

I ended up just recreating the shape layer with the trim path and it seems to be working.

Nothing seemed to work, so I just recreated the shape layer with the trim path animation and it seems to be working fine.

Thank you for trying to help.
