    How to reveal image this way?

      I have image and the object in it is one colored. It is transparent elsewhere. I want that the whole image is transparent in the start, and then it starts to reveal from one corner. This is similar what I want: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8aVd6b2pGw

      I mean how that text reveals. I know that tutorial and I can't do it like that because it doesnt look good. I need that the picture reveals to every direction with same speed.

          that might have been done with ay number of effects such as Write On or carefully animated masking or a path from Illustrator that is revealed by animating Stroke. Take your pick.

            No I didnt mean that I want to do the same thing what is in the video. If you read my reply I said:

            "I know that tutorial and I can't do it like that because it doesnt look good. I need that the picture reveals to every direction with same speed."

            So I know how to make text reveal like that with mask+stroke.

            I need to know how to reveal this kind of image:

            I can't explain better, but think that you drop ink into one corner of "mold" shaped like that and how it spreads.

              I'm guessing you want something a little fancier than this, but simply drawing drawing an elliptical mask around the start point, and than animating its expansion will probably get you half the way there...

                Ah, translation issue. A shared mistake, then. I have no idea what you want.
                Try this at the Cow, there are two or three in this series,

                  Animated masks or a combination of modified transition effects (e.g. Linear Wipe made look irregular with Roughen Edges). Will take some finetuning and time, but hey, that's always the case when things are supposed to look good...
