Animate along a custom path

    Did you know not only can you paste a shape path to a position of another layer, but you can use Auto-Orient to cause the rotation of that layer to follow the path!?

    Animating by hand can be tedious. Fortunately, using the often overlooked auto-orient feature of After Effects will help speed things up and will result in some incredible animations. Instead of trying to get the rotation and easing just right, make After effects do all the work for you!
