I use PathDeform (WSM) modifier (animate "Percent") for the arrow "stick", for the arrow head, I used Attachment Constraint (Animation > Constraints > Attachment Constraint) if u don't want to change the arrow head shape.

The spline will always be the path.

For this one, the whole arrow are 1 object, use PathDeform (WSM) only, so the arrow head change shape a little bit.

Hi, I tried to bind a camera on a path. It works, but the problem is, that the camera only move the way but doesn't rotate with the direction of the path. Can anybody help. (I use 3dsmax)

Hi, take a look the motion panel > Path Parameters rollout > Under Path Options group, check "Follow".
