i have a video with dual views. they are beside one another.

i have a snake-like divider which splits the two of them. i want this snake-like divider to be able to sway back and forth (with the warp command.

along this divider is a repeating banner. the banner is made up of a retangular mask and text. i want this repeating banner to follow along the snake-like divider.

Thanks for your help with this matter!

If I understand what you're going for correctly, you could probably make use of the ability to create a motion path from a mask path.
