Trim paths continuous loop (traveling down road animation)
on Aug 21, 2015 at 8:14:03 pm

Hi All,

I want to do a simple traveling down a road toward a city animation :

(rough sketch)

I thought the easiest thing would be to dash a stroke on a shape layer, add a camera and orient the stroke for perspective, then do a trim paths to animate the lines coming toward the camera. However I've quickly realized that trim paths isn't continuous -- is there a way to loop it continuously? loopOut? Or is there another approach I should be using? Repeater? 3D stroke?

Last resort is I'll create a giant road graphic and move the camera, but I was hoping there was a more pragmatic solution.

Thanks,

Temporary (actual) solution -- I'm just going to make the path really really long.

I'd try to make a seamless loop with the offset-effect...

Seamless loop with offset-effect was the ticket! Thanks, Frank.
