Hello, I'm wondering if any of you fine people could help in recreating the attached?

 

I'm seeing if there is a way of animating and filling a path in the way of the example. I have tried a stepped approach animation where I keyframe in steps using a dotted stroke but it doesn't have the same effect as the attached.

 

Any help would be amazing 🙂

 

Thank you,

Paul

This looks like it was made using a repeater. You could use mask paths to carve out the letters on a shape layer, add a repeater, then animate the count to go up. Make sure the position of the repeater's transform properties is at 0 though.

Try This:

  • Select your shape layer and reveal all shapes
  • Type Fill and Stroke in the Timeline search field
  • Select and delete all Fills and Strokes (to keep things clean)
  • Select all Shapes, right-click, and Group Shapes
  • Select Group 1 and Add Merge Paths
  • Change Merge Paths/Mode to Merge
  • Under Merge Paths, find Stroke, Change the End Cap to Round Cap, adjust the width, add Dashes and Gaps
  • Set Dash width to 0
  • Set a keyframe for Gaps and adjust it until you get the spacing you like
  • Move down the timeline and set a second keyframe for Gaps to match the Stroke Width
  • Duplicate the Grop
  • Change the End Cap to Projecting Cap on the duplicate
  • To make things easier to adjust, tie the Dashes/Gap property of the first Group/Stroke to the second Group Stroke with a simple pickwhip expression, so you only have to change the keyframes of the second
  • Move half way between the Gap keyframes and set an opacity keyframe for fhe stroke with the Projecting Cap to zero
  • Move down the timeline a bit more and set a second stroke opacity keyframe to 100

All done
