Main.gifI created this.  I want to repeat the moving elongagted triangle shape around the rectangle almost 10 times. How can I use a repeater to create copies of this without having to just duplicate 10 times the layer and offset the layer positions on the timeline? Can I get the  repeated shapes to follow position and rotation at an offset time position? Is there an expression for this?

You basically have two options. Dan Ebberts' Creating Motion Trails or the Echo effect. Motion trails will require 10 copies, Echo relies on time to offset a copy of the animated layer. The shape layer repeater cannot be used because it does not offset objects based on time, it offsets all copies by a single position, rotation, and scale multiplier.
