Hi, I have been asked to create a series of animations based on existing light trails. The shapes are now registered so the animation needs to replicate these shapes exactly. Does anyone know of a good tutorial that could help me out. Im guessing I would need to draw out the path and animate it?
Sorry, I don't really know what you're asking. Perhaps a bit more detail would be helpful.
What do you mean "existing light trails"? And what do you mean when you talk about basing your animation on them?

well, if you need to animate content to match a path shape, then you will need to keyframe it accordingly.
Your "path" needs to match the motion of your 'light' trail. So your velocity is going to be fixed depending on the number of inbetween frames you allow for.
Im not sure I get your question, but I tried... :)

Hi, The following link is a similar file to the one im trying to animate. If you imagine this beam has a start point and end point then its the inbetween I need to animate. How do I get the light to flow around this shape?
