Create multiple objects spiral out of Center Evenly

Trying to reproduce the spiral effect when multiple objects come out of a singular point at even spacing.

I tried to create a circle path - then scale that path - copy path - and past to the position of the object... didn't quite work.

Re-creating the effect similar to the motion at the :08 mark in the following video

How about parenting the layers to a null object and rotating the null while the layers move towards (or away from) the centre of the comp?

see this example: 5600_spiralnull.aep.zip

animating the rotation of the layer and it's anchor point can achieve a similar animation if for some reason using a parent won't work for you... though i think a parent would be advantageous here.

Thanks,

Figured something out:

1. create in and out for position ( just straight no curve in path )
2. create a null
3. parent object to null
4. rotate null with same in and out lets say 180 degrees
5. then counter the rotation on your objects (-180)

^^ similar to a ferris wheel i guess

Also can probably just create a path that is close to a spiral. Duplicate it > rotate > and copy paths to corresponding objects
