Animating Ellipse path of Dashed line
on Feb 6, 2018 at 3:20:46 pm


I have a dotted Ellipse shape layer, and I want to animate the size of it up and down without having the dots (from the dashed line) travelling and disappearing along the path.

I found that if I keyframe the Gap parametre to contrary the value of the Size I get the result I want, however, this gets quite complicated when I have multiple lines with different amount of dots on the path...

I'm looking for an expression that I could apply to the Dashes Gap parameter to contrary the Path Size of an Ellipse, in order to maintain the same amount of dashes, and without having to manually keyframe this.

Thanks in advance!
