my problem is this: I want to animate a line like it was being written on the computer screen with pen and ink. I have the final image that I want to produce, I just don’t know how to make an animation form it.
what I’ve tried so far is creating a mask tween to slowly expose parts of the final image until it’s all shown, but this process is pretty ugly to me. I’ve also tried shape tweening it, but all I can get out of this method is a bad morphing effect. the final image is complex, and I imported it from illustrator, so creating it totally in flash is pretty much out of the question.
anyone know a tutorial on this kind of thing? or can anyone at least point me in the right direction? thanks.
