hi there.
I am working on a teaser for a documentary about an architect.
We would like to create a line which starts from a corner of the screen and we follow it around while it draws out an architectural plan - or at least enough lines to pretend, at one point, that the plan is completed as we zoom out. We have got obviously the plan done, but we are not sure what the best option would be - a close-up 3d camera revealing the plan bit by bit or to follow a simple line growing in various directions, giving the impression it's drawing a plan (as we zoom out)?
Thanks for any suggestions!
