move and rotate a mask along a path........
on Mar 11, 2010 at 2:53:14 pm

Hallo every one!
Finally I have no idea what else I can try and I didn´t found anything in the internet, so I hope that someone here can help me.....

I´d like to do an similar animation as you can do with text:
A text follows a path AND ROTATES in the curves.
For example:
Effect -> Text -> Path Text
or
by animating the "First Margin" property in a Text Layer

BUT! Not with text! I´d like to do it with a Mask, Shape Layer or an image! Is that possible?
At the End I want to have many arrows following a path.....

Thank you very much for any suggestions!
Dorian.

You can turn a mask that you've drawn into a motion path.
Your shape layer can follow a motion path.

I have already read this, but thanks anyway! Unfortunately this isn´t what I was looking for. I´d like the object also to rotate depending to the path. Not only to change the position. Just like you can do it with text.

Have you tried to use the orient along path command on the layer? You may have to tweak rotation initially, but after that it should be just fine.
