Default line drawing effect : should be very simple?

i read the thread that Jefinho posted, called "Amazing line-drawing-effect" and my question may be similar, but not quite. the responses posted had links to examples that are different from what i want to do.

this is a quick b-day card i made for my cousin: http://geocities.com/flashbirthdaycard/

see the line effect, before the car appears? i've seen that effect in tons of places. i did my keyframe by keyframe...stupid; i'm sure there has to be a way to make this very simple (but "Amazing") effect with actionscript.

please let me know.

thanks,
hooman

well, its not necessarily easy. It requires quite a bit of management of lines and dynamic drawing progressively over a period of time. This may help:

Note the example in msg7

on a aside note, you can also use the follow-guide-as-you-draw techniquw for more complicated situations. The car for example...

Just a question from me:
Are you guys drawing the guide curve (outline of the car) first by the pencil tool over the bitmap of the car?

i think i'll try learning the scripting though, because it can reduce file size. i hadn't thought of the guide way though, thanks.

Is here someone who wants to answer my question above, please?
My question was:
Do we draw the guide curve (outline of the car) first by the pencil tool over the bitmap of the car?
