Greetings from a newbie,

I'm creating a path with the pen tool and I would like this path to have the colors:
Green at the beginning
Blue towards the center
Red at the end

However gradient tool seems to work on an X-Y axis basically resulting in the attached below photo.

Basically with the attached below image: I want this line to start Green and turn Blue towards the Mid point and then Red at the End, how can I do this?

I tried a couple of keywords on google and saw a few instructions related to Illustrator but couldnt apply them to After Effects. Any keywords would also help. Thank you.

AFAIK, you can't do that with gradients. Instead, you may use Trim Paths and multiple instances of the Path to create the your multi-colored line.

I think this effect may help you a lot in the process.
