Default How can I make a graphic travel in a smooth curved path?

I'm using Edius 6.05 on Windows 7..

I'm trying to take a keyable graphic (baseball) and make it fly around the screen in the shape of an S. I've tried using both 3D PIP and layouter and neither works - they both end up creating the path in jagged movements and a jagged path.

In Layouter, I've selected both linear and non-linear in the keyframes and all this does is make it look more sped up rather than smooth and curved. If I add more keyframes, it just makes more jerky movement.

In PIP, I can't find anywhere to create a curved path. I get the same results as the layouter.

Using layouter: right Click first layouter key point: select bezier from drop down menu: open /extend position menu: you will see bezier lines and points: tweak to give you the curves you need.
Cheers!

it is much easier to do this in Vistitle or Boris Red because you can see the path and you can fine tune the direction changes with the keyframe handles to give you the shape and smoothness you need while maintaining the same speed

Vistitle smooth move
Boris Red smooth move

Vistitle is by far the easiest way to do this move. However, it can be done in layouter using the graph mode in Layouter. It will take time, but it is possible.
