Hi,

I'm looking for a good way to make the "lines" that you see in this video at 00:22 - http://www.toxic.no/work/edgefolio.toxic

Best, Stig

I realize that I could sketch up some lines with the pen tool and use stroke to fill them, but then I want to make them "dance", or move together.

Best, Stig

For no-plug-in approach, see this:







Then there are plug-ins such as Plexus that make this much less a manual task.

Thank you!
I've downloaded linescreator but I think I would try "connect layers" as well Ted. Is it a way to make the lines "move" between the dots, like stroking?

Best, Stig

And how is it possible to create that 3D effect`where the dots are moving in 3d?

If you are using the tutorial above with the beam effect, you can set the "length" to 100%, then animate the "Time" from 0 to 50% to have the line animate on.
