How do I create a cirular path motion?

This seems like an easy concept, but I'm not getting it right.

After I imported my logo into Proanimator, I have an object pose sitting on the timeline...this is the part I'm uncertain. I want it to animate like in cylinder path. I went into advanced and I can see there are options for Distribute such as Circle Y or Cylinder Wrap.

I cannot set key frames from start to end so how do I make it actually move? Using one of the preset animations doesn't help....

Hi Rob,
Extend the pose length, make sure the pose is selected, then under Pose Actions on the right, choose SPIN Y. Set a Rotation degree value and make sure USE COMMON CENTER is selected. This is covered in Making It Look Great 1.
