AE: Parent Element to a point of a path?


Question

I want to parent an element (pre-compose) to one of the points on a path.

Imagine a line that has two paths. I want to parent an object (say, a leaf) to the top point of the path. So if my path is to have a bounce effect (the point of the path will move to create the effect...), so will my leaf.

Ultimately, it should (the leaf) move the same as my bounce line's top point.

Thanks!

It's not easy to tell from the question exactly how you have things set up, but it sounds like you're trying to animate an object along a path.

The simplest ways to do this would be to either a) copy the path and use it as the animation path for the object, or b) animate a null object along the path and parent the leaf to that.
