I've been building this animation, Its basically a cube cloned around a circle then cloned again linear on the z axis, making a tube shape. Its then put into a null along with some plain effectors and a camera, for a projection texture.

Everything works fine however I want to animate the movement of the the whole section, so I animated the null and when doing so the clones move faster from the rest of the objects in the null, as if the position of the clones is double the position of the null.

I made a test comp to show you what I mean.

Looking into this the clones stay locked if you move the null at frame 0, it only happens when you go past the 1st frame.

Also its the second cloner thats playing up.

Any help would be much appreciated.

take the Circle spline out of the null. it's used for it's shape and position and if it moves in global space that's added in
