I've created a solid, added some points with the pen tool, generated a stroke, then revealed the original image, and fooled with the End stopwatch to get it to animate. What I need to do now is animate the lines, going from a straight line to a curved one, and to have the pen tool points move in position as well.

I'm almost there, just can't find out exactly where to go to add keyframes to get those points moving.

Click on the layer with the paths also known as masks. Press "M". This opens up the mask control you need.

Animate the "Mask Path" parameter.
