Fractle-style Graph Shortcuts?

Is there a more efficient way to reproduce/animate this image instead of manually creating several objects and animating them individually?
The center circle would produce black lines outwards to other circles, continuing onwards to a point.

Not really.

Fortunately you have just one symbol -- a green circle with a dollar sign in it connected by straight lines.

You can duplicate, position and scale the symbols. You can use AE's beam effect on solids to create the lines. It's not tough, just time-consuming.

There may be additional ways to streamline the process using expressions, but I leave that to someone else.

That's what I was expecting, but I wanted to check anyway. Thanks for the fast reply.
