    how to create the effect of an invisible pen writing text

    marcinelli
      hello all,
      i have a word that in bitmap form that i need to reveal on screen as if drawn by an invisible pen. to make this feel real i need the reveal to follow the curves of the letters not just horizontally animate in a mask from left to right. that wont feel real enough since it won't really follow the curves of the letters. better to be able to do this with actionscript dynamically but using the timeline is ok.

      any clues?

      tia,
