I am trying to animate a text layer to simply move across the screen in a straight line between three keyframes.
When I drag the text from the second to the third position, a curved path spontaneously appears, taking it too far past the place where I want it to go. If I try to drag it back to where I want it, it creates a path that goes past that point and then doubles back on itself and comes back again.
I have tried again and again to get rid of this extra bit of path, but it won't go away. I've deleted the layer and keyframes and made the them again, I've restarted AE several times without saving, I've even restarted my computer, but every time it comes back. I am at my wits end.
