i'm making an effect test in which a bug crawls under a woman's skin. im using a neon light engine to create this. however, the problem is that my "bug" is moving in linear paths and i wish for it to curve as it turns. but there's no tween strength setting for the neon light engine. what can i do to make my bug's turns smoother?

I would draw a grey blob in an image editing program, import that and then animate it moving around.

Or for a quicker way, go to the textures folder for VisionLab, and use the "Ball.png" texture. It will probably work decently for a test anyway. Then if you are pleased with the results, you could create a more accurate bug shape in an image editor.
