Spline-based Cloner or Matrix objects offer no-keyframe Rate animation

When cloning onto a spline, Cinema 4D's Cloner and Matrix objects offer a Rate attribute that animates along the spline without the need for keyframes. You can vary the rate, and even cause clones to move backward. We'll apply the Rate attribute to create a simple setup that will trace the edges of a text or logo spline so lens flares can be applied.
