    Question How do I make this in my video?

    Hello - first time poster here.

    I recently started making some videos, and Im having great fun. I really want to add an effect in my videos, that Ive seen others do, but I cant figure out the best way to do it.
    This is what Im talking about: http://youtu.be/XQWvv-Yx4aE?t=2m21s (the scene with the map, the truck moving across it and the red dots following it).

    My initial thought was to create the map in Photoshop and produce at picture for each red dot, moving the truck bit by bit. But that doesnt look so smooth, so I dont think thats whats the creator of the video is doing.

    Can anyone help me out? Im using Sony Vegas Pro 12 and Adobe After Effects

    Where (mins and secs) does that scene appear? This a 46min clip and I don't want to watch it all.

    At 2 min 21 sec - the link should start the video at that time point

    The growing Line may be done by using After Effect's Paint tools (e.g. the "Stroke" effect). After drawing the complete line, add keyframes for the Paint's "Start" or "End" values, to make the line appear to grow along its path. Use the "Spacing" parameter to show 'dots' instead of a continuous line.

    There may be more help here:

    3 tracks
    Track 3 has the map only
    Track 2 has the red route only (the rest is transparent)
    Track 1 has the truck only only (rest transparent)

    Use masking on track 2 (reveal more and more of the route as the scene progresses)
    Use Track motion on track 1

    Job done!

    There is also a simple piece of free software that does animated map routes called Route Generator HERE. I don't know if it draws dots or dashes but I know it draws lines.
