Sarah BroadbentTrim paths on a vector image

Hi guys, I'm looking for an easy way to unmask many layers at once; in the past i have masked out what I need then key-framed the mask path to reveal it. Now I have a more detailed image (a sketch of a shed), that I want to draw itself out. I created a vector file with all 99 layers included, used "trim paths" to give it the drawing-out effect, but here is where I encountered problems.

With trim-paths, it works amazingly with a line, but with a shape layer the edges spill over and look a mess. Any guidance on how to neaten this up/other methods I could use?

Let me know if you can help - thanks!

Just use a radial wipe on those pieces that trim paths does not work on. Seems like it will do the same thing
