Simply create a bezier path and select your objects one by one with the snap tool and hold-drag each object to the desired position on the bezier. A red point will appear at whichever part of the bezier you have selected. Upon release the object will jump to the position of the highlight. repeat for all desired objects. To animate their movement simply reshape the bezier at time 2 and repeat the process. Each object will obtain a motion path from the first snap to the second.

This works for all objects including lights and cameras and any geometry can be used to snap to.
