    Parent one end of shape path to a null object

    Prince_Myshkin

      Hello all,

       

      I'd like to animate a line (shape layer with two points) so that one point remains stationary and the other is locked/parented to a point in some footage.

       

      I've tracked the footage and assigned the movement to a null, so I have the keyframes I'd like to apply/parent the shape layer to. My problem is applying this movement to just one point of the shape layer and not the other. I can obviously just animate the point by hand, but seeing as I have the movement tracked anyway there must be a much quicker way.

       

      Is this best done with expressions (if so, I'm a newbie, so please spell it out for me), or is there a more simple way to do it?

       

      Many thanks.
