Hello there,

 

I was wondering if it was possible to create a marching ant effect with the stoke on one shape layer with out this inconsistent clumping of lines? I am using the offset dash option. 

 

Best regards

Possibly in the properties of the Shape Layer you accidentally added a Gap in addition to a Dash, delete it with the less button next to the plus.

Also check the actual path geometry. If you inadvertently add an extra anchor point it would also cause weird behavior with dashes. And of course I would recommend buying Plexus for this sort of thing if you do this a lot. It is much more intuitive and since the renderer is applied as the last step, the dashges are consistent automatically.

I did look at plexus and I got it working, but the look wasn't really right for the job. (too web like)

And this is for an animatic, so the objects in the scene are not really Z space.

 

I do enjoy plexus it is a great plug-in, all be it labour intense.
