I am trying to recreate an effect I saw in a commercial where a ribbon is following a path. Instead of the normal ribbon shape, I' going with a star. I know how to create lines/arcs/star etc. in the spline tool, I just can't for the life of me figure out how make it have the wipe on look where it's following a path. I am using 3ds max 6 as well. I'm sure it's very simple, but I'm still in the newbie phase of my 3d experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the spot I am using as reference to mimic.
