Hello, what I want to make an animation where a constellation appear in the sky background.

The idea is that the stars appear one by one as glowing dots, and then lines appear to join the dots. Maybe something like this video:





Except I need all the dots to appear first before the lines starts joining them together.

What have you done so far and what are you having trouble with?

Well, you see how the star dots kind of twinkles when they appear? I'm not entirely sure how to make that little twinkle. Do I make a star shape on a new layer and just animate it?

Woops, sorry posted the reply too soon.

To clarify. The glowing dots and the "star flash" looks like they're on separate layers. I can make the glowing dots that's pulsating, but I don't know how to make the non-pulsating star flash.
