    After Effects Path Help

    pwnge630

      So i want to animate this square to slide across the floor but whenever I try to do it, the Square curves into the "floor". If anyone knows how to fix this that would be wonderful.

          First, your keyframes show the path is below the floor. Second, you have 3 and 2 would do. Third,  with the CTI (Current time indicator) set to the last keyframe, select the pen tool, hold down the Alt/Option key and then hover over the keyframe with bezier handles and you should see the convert vertex tool. It looks like a little V turned on it's side. Click not the keyframe to clip the bezier handles and change the spatial interpretation to linear.
