    How to use a path (mask) as a guidance path for an object?

    mambo88 Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I want to use a path / mask as a guidance line for an object. I know i can draw a mask, then cut the path parimeter and paste it into the the position, but that seems to come with all kinds of restrictions. For example; when i use that method, i can't make the object stop moving halfway trough the animation. Also i cant animate the object further along because the object starts to do all kind of weird things, like flipping horizontally / vertically.

       

      I was wondering if there isn't just a function build in After Effects to track a path? Or a plugin?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated

       

      Thanks in advance!

      Kind regards,

      Yori
