Animated Line Tutorial

Recommended Posts

You didn't follow the steps that closely dude.

First you need to switch your background to transparent, resize your composition, and make your mask reveal the original. its a start though

instead of this you could
1. import your line from photoshop into ae
2. create a camera
3. keyframe the position of the camera to move left or right
4. drag the line into your composition
5. use the pen tool to cover the entire line
6. generate a stroke (effect>generate>stroke)
7. increase the brush size until it covers the entire line
8. animate the stroke from start to finish and keyframe it

pretty much the same thing..... if you don't understand the other way try this

I'm getting screwed up on Step Three. I don't know what you mean when you say "Drag and drop that"? Also, when I try to paste the mask into the Brush Position, it just creates a Mask 2. I got it to work once a long time ago, but I forgot how.

When says drag and drop that he means take the effect write click and drag it to apply it, and correct me if I'm wrong but you want mask 2 to show up in brush positions.
