I am following some online instructions but I can't seem to get it right. I have a motion path (simple text symbol of one word) moving from left to right. It fades in from Alpha 0 just after it starts moving from the left, it hits Alpha 50% in the middle of the movement, and fades out to 0 just before it hits it's destination on the right.
I made some changes and seem to have knocked some of the points in the movement off the horizontal line, so during the animation it dips down and back up. I keep trying to use the select and the subselect tool to grab individual points and set the y axis using the x/y in size and position on the Properties tool. I'm not able to make it work properly. Is there a very specific way to select o symbol that is part of a motion and automatically set the horizontally point (y) for ALL points in that motion path? Even using the "Path" settings for x/y on the properties panel isn't helping. If I select the whole object and the colored motion path shows up, and change that number, I still have points in the motion that aren't taking on the horizontal number.
Thanks for any info!
you could click your tweened object in each keyframe and, in the properties panel, assign it the same y property.
kglad does it matter whether or not I select the keyframe with the select or the subselect tool?
no, i don't think so. but if you have a problem with the subselect tool, use the select tool.
