This is an utterly boring tool. Let’s face it, who cares about drawing straight lines? And yet, there are many times when you need to do a simple shape or two, perhaps some motion graphics, and you have to dust of the After Effects you thought you’d left behind when you found the joys of nuke. No more! (Well, unless you need something other than lines…)
This little node can draw all the lines you want, as well as animate it being drawn, dash the lines, tweak the spacing and softness etc… There’s still a couple of oddities in it that I’ve yet to go back and tidy up, but I’m long overdue a post and it’s tidy enough to be worth putting out there for now.
