In this video at 1:32 what effect was used to create that 'flicker' in the video when the underline enlarges in length? Is there a non-plugin effect that could be used, ie default after effects effect?
I'd make a solid. The vertical dimension of the solid would be the desired thickness of the line. Then I'd animate the layer's horizontal scale only using hold keyframes. It ought to take 2 minutes to get it right.
