I have been searching for a while, but I have not seen a way to easily create this effect of drawing on the screen:






about 37 seconds in

I know that I could manually take the pen tool to trace out the path given, but I wanted it to be more automated, by using the motion tracking points. Any ideas?

I don't think that you'd save yourself any time by not just drawing this manually.

That said, you can copy and paste motion path data into a path shape if you really want to do it the other way:
"Create a mask or shape from a motion path"
