For the life of me, I don't understand it. I have AFX CS6, and I have gone through edit>pref>general>display>all key frames... Also have gone through View>view options>and ticked off all boxes. But my motion path will not show after I've made a few keyframes.
No, that wasn't it. I learned that using a shape layer won't show the motion path, although is it supposed to? I made a regular comp and the motion path showed up, but in the shape layer, it does not. Thanks for your reply!
If you animated the layer using the Position property then you should see its path in the Comp Panel. Check that you're not using one of the Shape Layer's built-in transform properties to animate - there is no visible path for those.
What you can do is to animate using a Null layer and then linking the Shape Layer's built-in position to this Null with a simple Expression pick-whip.

I know this is only like 2 years late, but I just ran into this, and wanted to post this in case anybody else came upon this thread looking for a possible solution.
My shape layer was in fact showing a path I just couldn't see it. I was looking at the anchor point of the shape itself and not the layer. I had a really small circle I had zoomed in to animate. I inadvertently moved the circle to the position I wanted to start my animation, and then when I animated the layer, the circle was about 500 pixels off the layer anchor point. The circle was far enough off the motion path I just couldn't see it on screen. Super derpy. That is all.
