  1. Great tutorial. I am having a small issue. After 5 locations when I add another keyframe to "animate the trip" the whole piece falls apart and I get an error issue about not being able to read the "classNAME", any tips? thanks!

  2. Hi there, first of all thank you so much for this video and for the awesome animation. I have one question: I'm not seeing the Comp Vehicle Icon's effects control. I want to change the plane to a boat so I was trying to figure it out. Thank you!

  3. Hi, love the template, but why does the icon sometime glitch out when following the path? Especially along a curved line. I have tried everything, even taking off auto rotation (which usually does the trick) but sometimes it still glitches! Help! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. When I click on the design dashboard, it doesn't appear on screen and I keep getting an "unknown exception" error message on screen from After Effects? Do you have any idea why this is happening?

  5. I just bought this..May be I should have checked first. Is there a limit on the number of locations? Is it 10? Also how do I add a custom map? I wish your tutorial explained everything starting from scratch.

  6. Also what is frustrating is how quickly he goes through the car journey section as I am having trouble working out how to isolate the nodes to manipulate the path
