    Creating an animated line

      Hi, I have full cs3 prod prem. I have a composition I am doing with some hookup wiring diagrams. I want to create an arrow simulating the cables (in different colors) that hook up part a to b to c etc. This is for a video presentation.

      Originally, I was thinking to do line segments and apply after effects keyframes etc. I wish there was a simple effect for this.

      ANyone have any ideas or better ways to do this?

      The idea is an arrow from an output box, then segments that animate a hookup line to the next devices input ( connecting a patch cable).

      I tried premiere, ps, and now looking at after effects. Using the PEN tool to do lines is a real buster.
