Motion 5 is the effects engine behind Final Cut Pro X. However, Motion is a very powerful, highly-capable motion graphics package in its own right.
In this short, six-minute video tutorial, I’ll show you how to animate text on a path in Motion 5. Along the way, I’ll illustrate how to change the texture of the path and the timing of the animation. (By the way, this process is similar in Motion 4, so if you own that earlier version, this tutorial will be helpful as well.)

You go through this at a fast crack, but repeated viewings will I am sure be very helpful. A really useful extension would be to explain the animation of a route on a map overlay, which is an essential component of many travel documentaries. Thanks again.
This is a GREAT idea! I’ll write this up in an article.
