    Can Line Motion Draw?

    Josh_Pratt Level 1
      I'm working on a preloader, which is a movie clip which is 100 frames long. I've got an animation of a line spinning a circle like a minute hand on a clock. I'd like to have wherever the line travels to draw and fill in the same color as the line. I could spend the time to make a mask and a fill, but I thought that maybe with actionscript or something there was a way to have the line just "draw" over wherever it travels.

      Any suggestions?

          If you draw the line with ActionScript, you will know where the end points are, allowing you to draw a series of rectangles as the line moves. If the line has been tweened along a timeline, you could still get the bounds of the movieclip containing the line and do the same thing.
