    Bend an image / drawing along a motion path

    I need to animate three arrows coming in from 3 sides, top left and right , all starting straight, but I need them to come in straight and 'bend' together to form the finished image attached

    Any ideas - been scratching my had all day over this one.

    tried that - but the bend looks funny, as it 'grows' to form the kink in the arrow

    unless someone has a better idea i think you can only add more keyframes in your shape tween to make it look nice.

    Fla wouldn't show anything - the problem is the shape tween, as the image skews to one side, it does grow along a defined path, so it bloats at the bottom if you see what I mean.

    Will try and up a fla that will show problem

    tried to create an fla - but still no joy anywhere near what I am looking for - look at the attached file on my first post - this is what the end of the movie needs to look like - but the need to come in as straight arrows from off stage and bend in unison to create the final image.

    Willing to Paypal $50 is someone can come up with a solution
