Hi ALbie,
what you have to do is to create a seperate layer for each star. Then add
guide layers to each of
the layers. Copy the guide from your first layer and paste it in place
(ctrl+shift+v) in the other
guide layers. Then you should relocate the frames of the other star/guide
layers so that they
appear sucessivly. You also might need to cut the motion guide for each
sucessive star.
