Select the first keyframe of the motion guide layer, then choose the circle shape from the tools menu and make the fill color empty and the outline anycolor you like. Use the tool to draw a circle and keep in mind that this is the path your object or ball will follow.

In the above picture I drew a circle and sqewed it using this button to make it appear as you see it. Then I chose the pencil button and drew two lines very close to each other so as to break the solid line of the circle I drew, follow the example below.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash.
