I have a mask path that is needing an animated stroke. The Stroke effect comes close, but I'm wanting it to consistently have a diamond shape that elongates and stretches out as it follows the path. I've seen this effect before where there's an animated stroke with about a 20-pixel thickness in the middle and two tapered ends that snakes its way through an image. Anyone have any ideas?

3d stroke from trapcode is similar to stroke and has a taper property (among other options). that's probably what you've seen before.
