Many After Effects users employ the woefully under-featured Stroke effect to create these lines. After last week’s Hidden Gems, now you know about its more powerful cousin, the Write-on effect.

This keeps your eyes on the prize while you’re working and minimizes distractions. More interfaces should be designed like this. Very elegant and easy to maneuver.
