Hi all,

i'm trying to figure out a way to animate this photo:

i need the car to come inside the frame (from the bottom right) and leave in the upper left corner. I want the car to brake slightly when it holds (that's the easy part) and i want the wheels to rotate and there is my problem: as the weels are in perspective i can't figure out how to get the rotation right. i did try to place a null to fit the wheels perspective, but they still behave/rotate strangely in any way...

any advice on how to achieve this !??

thanks. Steve.

I would copy and cut out the wheels, then use corner pin to make them circular, then apply the Transform effect to rotate them, then corner pin again to get back to skewed status. It might work.

Great suggestion Steve!

Additionally, has a more flat perspective wheel...
