Path reveal with hard edge?

Recommended Posts

I've got various paths that I'd like to reveal with a hard edge.

I'm familiar with the stroke masking method of setting start/end keyframes, but those have a rounded edge.

I would just do a simple rectangular mask reveal, but there are a number of curves in these lines.

Here are some example frames of how I'd like this to work. And while I could certainly manually set keyframes, there are a LOT of paths to do this on, so having a more automated method would save me a ton of time.

Use shape layers and the trim path animator. It has a hard edge. Super easy and you can draw your shapes and just animate them instead of reveals.

 

Pretty sure that was Myleniums suggestion in the Adobe forums.
