I've seen this effect a couple of times before, don't know the correct name for it, but I can show you:


I'm talking about the lines that animate in and out, they have a fill color and a stroke color, but still gets animate in its shape, anyone who can help me?

Sorry, I can't see it; the computer at my desk is Flash-challenged. Is this thing on YouTube?

Funnily enough, I just stumbled upon how to create this exact effect yesterday.

1. Make a new layer.
2. Draw a mask spline on that layer.
3. Apply the Stroke effect to create your "fill". Make the Brush Hardness 100% and animate as desired. Set the Paint Style to "On Transparent".
4. Right-click on the layer and select Layer Styles => Stroke

You should be good to go.

Cheers,
Steve

Or just use shape layers and the Trim Paths operation.
