I've got various paths that I'd like to reveal with a hard edge.
I'm familiar with the stroke masking method of setting start/end keyframes, but those have a rounded edge.
I would just do a simple rectangular mask reveal, but there are a number of curves in these lines.
Here are some example frames of how I'd like this to work. And while I could certainly manually set keyframes, there are a LOT of paths to do this on, so having a more automated method would save me a ton of time.
Shape Layer --> Stroke
Shape Layer --> Trim Paths
All you need.
Feels like there's got to be a better way. Trim Paths on an actual shape (vs. a single path) isn't any less tedious than masking since you have to tweak start, end and offset so much to keep the angle correct.
