Hey guys,

Does anyone know hoe to animate a "New Layer" to move in a curvy path?

the green play button in this example is what I am talking about!

I'm working on something that will make animating along paths a little easier, but in the meantime, you can use the technique from the example you posted: put the layer that you want to move in a container that's larger than the layer, then rotate and move the container at the same time. It's a little tricky, but you should open the example and play with the layers to really understand what's going on. Try putting this line after the "setting up the layers" section in the source file:

btnplaceholder.backgroundColor = 'red'

It will show you exactly how the container layer is moved and rotated. Hope this helps!
