I am trying desperately to create a simple animation with a arrow and stroke to basically animate from the start as seen in the video, and then stop at about 200 degrees. I sort of fluked getting the arrow head and stroke shape to work, wondering how you guys would create such an animation. I have seen people use the wipe effect as well but i didnt like it, was wondering how you would go about creating this.
I searched many Youtube tutorials for hours and its now sort of getting overwhelming
There's no magic involved. Once you have the circle path you can simply copy & paste it to the arrow's position and adjust the timing of the resulting keyframes. All that's left after that is to animate the rotation or enable auto-orient on the arrowhead so it points in the right direction. Anyway, based on your description it's clear that your time is better spent actually reading the online help and learning the basics than looking up another quadrizillion tutorials that leave those things out:
