Hi,

I am still a newbie to After Effects. I am trying to place a movie clip along a path. I have seen a couple of tutorials but they are for "moving" the image along the path and not placing it along the path like you can do with Pattern Brush in Illustrator. I kept telling myself that this shouldn't be hard but I just can't figure it out. Attached is the example of what I am trying to do in which the green stick will be an animated flower in place. Please advise! Thanks millions in advance.

It's a simple matter of playing around with position, rotation and scale on the layer. Nothing complicated. You'll have to do it for each flower, which might get a bit time-consuming, however.

Some of the MoGraph features of C4D (such as the cloner which you could use to place clones along a spline) would be excellent features for AE too.
I would suggest filing a feature request.

Thank you for your reply! I was hoping that there would be a quick way to do it but since there isn't I will put some music on and start placing one by one. Thanks.
