  • Add multiple detail comp to folow text on close circula path

    Posted by Maxime Archambault on June 1, 2023 at 7:41 pm

    Hello All !
    So I try to add some detail that will follow one letter in the text on a close curve path.

    The first image is my illustrator file with in red the result i will like to atchive in Ae.
    the little detail call ETINCELLE follow at the exacte spot on the letter it on.

    I have try with trim path and the expression

    var path = thisComp.layer(“PATH FOR Etincelle”).content(“Shape 1”).content(“Path 1”).path ;

    var trimPath = thisComp.layer(“PATH FOR Etincelle”).content(“Shape 1”).content(“Trim Paths 1”).end/100 ;
    var targetLayer = thisComp.layer(“PATH FOR Etincelle”);

    var point = path.pointOnPath(trimPath)


    I do not understand put it not following at the beginning of the path
    This method will need 1 path for each detail ETINCELLE that i want to add. change the trim path where i want to put the comp ETINCELLE.
    I can’t move just the anchor point , it move the entire path and not following the letter anymore.

    3- Is there a simple method that you will use.

    Let me know thanks
