Software version: FCP 10.4.8 or later
Add a Linear or Smooth Template to your project. Choose the number of turns and the animation speed. Change the line shape, style and color. Customize the start and ending text and place it anywhere along the path.
RT Path templates have built-in perspective controls that allow you to adjust the path along the X, Y and Z planes giving you even more control over your path trajectories.
Need to add a car, plane or boat to your path animation? No problem; select from a built-in set of vehicle options with plenty of customization options. Use the drop zone for adding your own custom vehicles or graphics.
If you need more than 3 turns, it’s easy to join paths together to create as many turns as you need.

Wow that looks great. I know motion limits the number of turns so can I use multiple paths if I have a route with 10 turns? Great stuff, found you on youtube (sub’d and liked of course).

Just purchased this, not bad but would love to have more than 3 turns, this is very limiting.

Hello Stefan. The limitation is not with RT Paths, but what Motion allows you to publish and still have control. Our help videos explain how to get more turns.

Mark included a variety of vehicles which was very useful.

The masters of FCPX & Motion have struck again! Paths is a brilliantly simple plug-in that will be useful for years to come. And the pricing is super affordable!

JUST IN TIME… Was assigned a project at work requiring a “walkthrough” of a new department. Worked perfectly and saved a bunch of time. If I had one wish it would be to have one or two more turns as an option.
Glad I bought it…

Quick and simple to use and saves loads of time by avoiding having to work with Motion 5.

Like all the Ripple Training products, this one is a solid value for the money. It affords a simple, convenient way to show animated lines and objects moving from one location to another. The plugin is straightforward, simple to use, and satisfies an unmet need for just this kind of plugin. Great Job Steve and Marc! Highly recommended.

I have not used this plug in in any of my projects as yet. I have played around with it and is very intuitive, easy to. use.

You can do it by hand, or you can take this plugin and save a lot of time. Very useful plugin! In 90% of cases, it optimizes the time of creating animations of different types of lines on your projects. The only thing would be good to increase the number of gradations of the animation speed in the direction of deceleration. Solved this task by creating a compound clip and slowing it down. Satisfied with the purchase, and I recommend it to you!

RT Paths is another in a line of simple, inexpensive, but incredibly helpful plug-ins from the guys at Ripple Training. Recently faced with the task of creating dozens of animated maps to indicate shipping routes for a client, I was prepared for some long nights creating them all by hand. Imagine my delight when Steve and Mark posted this latest time-saver. With incredible efficiency I was able to not only deliver the route maps quickly, but I was also able to add enormous production value by using images of client’s own fleet of trucks for the moving icon— and was even able to do the routes in a 3D perspective as well. One happy client, one less-harried editor. Thanks, Ripple Training!

RT Paths is awesome! It’s very simple to figure out and a great addition. I like FX Factory’s abundance but I love the lower cost buying direct from RT.

Excellent plugin for so many uses. I am using this for two documentary programs where we are animating maps and locations. Easy to use, and easy on the system. Great work you guys!
