I was wondering if you could draw a motion path for objects to follow. I have multiple objects(12) that all need to follow on the same path. Do I have to animate all of them individually, or can I draw a path? These objects are NOT masks. They are text imported from Illustrator(CS6).
If Microsoft Powerpoint can do it, then surely Adobe can...

You can do this in several ways. The easiest is with Parenting. Next would be to tie position of one layer to position of another layer with an expression. You can also draw a mask path on a layer, select the mask in the timeline, reveal the position property of another layer, set a new keyframe for position to guarantee the mask path will be used as a motion path, and paste.
See this thread for details and a screenshot.
These are AE basics. You can also find more information by using the Search Help field at the top right corner of AE.
It works perfectly!
