How do you combine paint strokes?
on Jun 6, 2017 at 3:06:13 pm

I'm trying to make a logo with tendrils animate so those tendrils grow out. I'm taking the eraser tool and animating my erasing the tendrils backward to do that, but it'd be nice if there was a way to combine strokes into one stroke, so that every time I release the mouse button it doesn't create a new stroke.
Like there's parts where the tendrils overlap eachother, so I have to jump over with a new stroke. Is there a way around this? Is this (erasing) the best way to accomplish this?
Thanks

Whoops! Using a brush is the wrong AE tool for the job.
You'll probably have better luck using AE's Write-On effect, using tendril-shaped, non-closed masks on a solid.
It's like animating a signature... only tendrils.
