Adding line to a moving dot in After Effects
on Jan 19, 2017 at 3:52:56 pm

Hi.
I've been trying to make a figure in After Effects with moving dots where every dot is followed by a line that goes
very thin at the end.
Does anyone knows if thats doable with expression o trapcode? or how to do it?
Here's a screenshot of a video that i saw on the internet that exemplifies what i'm talking about whith adding those lines.


Help very much appreciated

I could tell you how to do it with solids, masks converted to Motion Paths and the Write-On effect, but that's not what you want.

thanks for your answer.

I tried with the write-on effect but i have a comment. As time goes by in the timeline. The ending part of the line goes thicker to reach the size of the beginning part. Is there a solution to keep the beginning wider and the ending thinner?
Or that's the reason that you said is not what i want?
Thank you again.
Here a screenshot:

It sounds as if you simply have to change the keyframes in the Write-On effect -- reverse the Brush Size.

the way to make Write-on change the brush size through time is to change time properties toggle to "size"
