Flexible arrow

Hey there All!

 

In Composer I can create nice arrow movement using Arrows from Author tab. But arrow shape is always the same - straight.

I need to show "flexible" arrow which shape is bent during movement along curve. How can I do that? Please

Re: Flexible arrow

Hi Lukasz,

 

there is a way to use a polyline.

If you want to use such an actor you have two possibilities:

 

1. the property Extremity > Start or End offers an small arrow

 

2. use the Front Line > Type > Advanced
    you get the possibility to create a line with Symbols as you want.

Re: Flexible arrow

Thank you Dirk.

 

That is good enough, but...

Is it possible to show arrows movement without moving start and end point of polyline?

I want to show objects moving along constant path, in this way I would create kind of infinite movement.

Re: Flexible arrow

this type of property is also usable for Path.

Try to use Associative path from Animation and Front Line Advanced.

May be this is a way without too much complexity.
