I am very excited about that little orange swooshing line. I am by no means a motion graphics animator, but it has been my task for the past 4 days to make something awesome that pleases the client. The last hold up… my swooshing line was not “smooth”. They wanted it faster, smoother and “NOT JITTERY”. I had no idea how to fix it. The key frames would not play nice. A simple wipe wouldn’t work because the line wouldn’t appear to move… a moving feathered mask and a vector line shape with only one line point moving (to move the dashes) later… swwoooop!!! And its super easy to adjust the time to whatever they want! Oh, happy happy day.
