Hi,
I'm trying to show the path of an airplane across a map, specifically a dotted line to track the plane's path until it's complete, like when we see Indiana Jones' path in those movies. Would this be done with a Paint effect, Motion Sketch or something like that? I was hoping I could just choose an option to show the motion path or something like that, but I didn't see a choice like that. I would really appreciate any insights on this.

Thank you very much,
Neil
