    Animating an open mask path

    ATaylor

      I am trying to animate an open mask path so that it appears to bend in half. I have a path with the Omino Snake effect applied creating a thick line with some text and different colored sections applied. When I adjust the mask path (from straight with slight waves to bent) over 2 seconds the path first shortens then expands back to the correct length and bent shape. The beginning and end positions are correct, but the actual movement looks all wrong. I have tried going in and keying each frame to keep the path's length consistent but that results in a very jumpy path. If anyone has any tips on controlling a path in between key frames please help!
