Hmmm. I'm not sure I understand. You want' to have a raster image animate along a path?
or
Create a pattern brush of an image, than apply the brush to a path?
If the latter, you could open the image with Illustrator, than drag it into the brush palette.
Than, select the path and click on the brush you just created, in the Brushes palette.

Let us know if this is even remotely close to what you are looking for.

or is a brush better?

I don't think you can use a raster as a brush, unsure.
Here's a file that describes how to make a Pattern Brush...

You can apply a brush to any path.
