This is very frustratiing. Simply trying to go through the After Effects Tutorials and am on the "Animate Object to Follow Along a Path" one. I have done everything but when I try to play the preview (by hitting the play button or spacebar or  numpad 0" it does not play.  My CPU usage jumps but nothing ever happens. I can drag the slider and see the animation but why wont it play?

I guess something just got stuck as a restart fixed it... seems odd. But the obvious solution I suppose.

The problem could have been caused by system resources getting used up, then clearing out. 

 

In the future, when you are having problems with a tutorial, post a link. Thre are more inadequate tutorials presented by enthusiasts that have found a recipe that works for them than there are good ones. If we are going to help you out we need to know what recipe you were trying to follow.
