There's this line i've been trying to re-create in AE but i haven't been able to i've tryed thoese effects

- Stroke
- Vegas
- 3D Stroke

But i coulnd't make it the same. Basicly the color ain't really a problem since i belive it's done by using ramp and the glow it's just probably that "Glow" but the problem comes at animating the path.

The line goes from Thick to a Thin and so on until the end of the path. Here's an example.

The source quality was pretty bad so i coulnd't get anything better then that.

Does anyone know's how i could make this effect? Maybie not using a path? Something else? Can't figure anything out at the moment.
