    Can you solve my problem.
    I add a motion path to an object.
    I copy the object to get it to appear at the end of the motion path.
    I cannot find the way to do this without a bounce effect when I ‘disappear’ the original and ‘appear’ the copy.
    How do I make an alignment of the two when the original is not shown at the end of its path?

    Hi John,

    Our design team has come back with the following solution to your issue:

    Step 1: Make a copy of the object.
    Step 2: Add a ‘motion path’ effect to the selected object.
    Step 3: Place the copied object directly central over the end-point (red arrow) of the motion path.
    Step 4: On the original object add a ‘Fade-out’ animation from the ‘Exit effects.’ Then click in the ‘custom animation’ tab to make the animation appear ‘with previous.
    Step 5: On the copied object add a ‘Fade in’ animation and add the ‘after previous timing.’
    This should ensure that the object fades smoothly and is aligned as it transitions to its new position.

    Does this help? Please let us know if not, and we can look into the matter further for you!
