Hi everyone:

I can't find anything about this effect so I have to ask you. How can I bend a line as the example below while it's moving around the comp?

Thx.

Video curve line

PD.: I've posted this in the Vegas forum because I'm stupid so my apologises for repeating a threat haha.

Apply a Stroke effect to a mask that consists of a single line. Animate the mask, and use the bezier handles to curve the line when necessary.
You can also use a Shape layer, but a Stroke gives you the nice rounded ends that are shown in the example you linked to.

BTW, the link is not correctly formatted, and I had to copy the link location and paste to my browser to get there.

Sorry for the link. I'd swear I linked correctly.
