Hi guys,

I'm looking for a tutorial that deals with the issue of an animated stroke revealing an ampersand, but when it gets to the 'crossover' points it's too big and reveals parts that I don't want it to yet.. Does that make sense? I remember seeing a tut somewhere else, but haven't managed to track it down!

Here's the deal:

Any help on this would be great because it's a really tight turn around for this (as usual).

Many Thanks,

Instead of using the Stoke effect, you might consider using the Write-On effect. It allows you to animate both brush position and brush size. It's a little trickier to use than Stroke, but not much.

Thanks for the reply Dave. Not that familiar with Write-On, will give it a whirl and hopefully it's pretty straightforward.

Aso thought I may be able to use multiple strokes/masks varying sizes and animate them individually.

Thanks again for the help.
