Urgent need to create a path with arrows (like a stream of arrows), where particles are tracing the same path.

How can I do this?

It all depends on the shape of the path and how accurately the arrows traverse along this path. Perhaps you can provide a scanned sketch?

The last post in this thread may help you:

Also, if you have Particular you can use it to do this kind of animation. If I remember well, this tutorial may have some pointers on how to do that:

Hi Linda,

There is an effect which helps you create a stream, It's called Echo. If you have the arrow, draw the motion path it follows. After that, you should make a new adjustment layer and place it above the arrow. Then pre-compose them. Now you can use the Echo effect as you wish on the compsition.
