Hi vinod_icat, welcome. This any help?

It is the first of a series about creating arrows in AE.

I know this post is very old, but I wanted to share in case it helps other people searching like I have.

We developed this new After Effects script, Easy Arrows, which allows you to attach an arrow (or any shape) to an animated stroke, with the click of a button.

Check it out:


Hope you find it useful. :-)
