Greetings all,

I have been looking around for hours now, and I have yet to figure out how to get a moving line across images in After Effects. I have been able to succesfully tie sounds and images, but how do I get a moving line across said images. Basically I need to recreate this:

and have control over how fast the line is moving over each image.

Thank you.

Boy, I hope YOUR video will be a little more compelling than that dog! I started falling asleep after two minutes, and gave up on the rest. I presume you mean the moving vertical line. It's dead simple:
  • Make a long, skinny solid. In SD Pal, I'd make 3x576 solid.
  • Move the solid to its starting position and make a position keyframe.
  • Move to the time in the timeline where you want the solid to reach the other side and move it.
  • Repeat as necessary for subsequent scenes.
