Emulating Cirque du Soleil's new video
on Nov 15, 2016 at 4:43:03 pm

I just found this new video by Cirque Du Soleil and I've been trying to figure out how they did it. Specifically the lines that appear and disappear between 00:11 and 00:14. Does anybody have an idea how to achieve this?

Many thanks!

Pretty easy stuff -- make a mask on a solid. Animate the Stroke effect. Precomp this and use it as a track matte over other video in the main comp.

You could also use a Shape layer and animate the layer's Stroke only instead of a solid/masl/stroke effect. But I like using a solid. Call me old school.
