Hello !!

Someone can help me ? I maked a special effect with Trapcode Form plug-in (I recreated the "ink" effect from the Street Fighter 4 Intro :-) ), i would like to deform my effect (in a compostion) along a spline, or better, i want to make this effect follow a 3D trajectory.

Thanks a lot

There are a number of distort plugins under effect>distort that can achieve the look you want. Nothing will distort anything in true 3d, but you can fake the perspective.
The first one that comes to mind is Bezier Warp. You could also use Reshape or maybe Mesh Warp. I suggest playing around with them and other plugins that are in that section and perhaps you'll find a recipe that works for you.

without a 3-D plugin, as long as it doesn't change perspective more than 30%, it will work fine.
