Animated text

hi everyone!
so i am working on a website and i have something that resembles a korean character (similar to those chinese characters or “kanji”) well anyway… i would really like it to seem like the letters are being painted on stroke by stroke… in a flash movie… is there an easy way to do this?

and i already have the “character” that i want to use… its actually a logo… that was made in illustrator…

is there no way out of this but to re-make the logo in flash? because that would be really dificult…

im actually thinking if this would work… keeping the imported image and putting a layer over it that would cover the different strokes and reveal it by tweening the “cover”…

well if anyone has an idea please let me know

Hmmm… I’m not sure what would be the easiest way of going about this. I guess it would depend on how complicated the character is.

It’s rare that I’ll suggest this, but perhaps you’d be best off with a frame-by-frame animation. Break apart the character, then reveal a little bit in each frame, to get the brush stroke effect?

attach the image as a bitmap and i will vectorize it.
