I am making a splash screen for a website I am making, and I want one of the letters to draw itself, then expand out into the whole word. I have the expanding part done, but I need to make the letter draw out first.



I am aware of the masking technique, but I don't want to manually draw it. When I do this, it results in differently sized segments and appears choppy. I also want it to have an ease, which is difficult to do frame by frame. Is there a good method for doing this?

Here's an idea of what I mean:


  • You should avoid Flash. There are a lot of better ways to create something like this on the modern web. – Zach Saucier Feb 15 '15 at 19:50
  • Also, both of your goo.gl links are broken – Zach Saucier Feb 15 '15 at 19:51
  • That won't work on any phone or computer that blocks Flash. You should still use another method, Flash is bad – Zach Saucier Feb 15 '15 at 20:02
  • What would you suggest use instead? – Alex Wohlbruck Feb 15 '15 at 21:20
  • Read the links I posted before, you'll find your answer :) – Zach Saucier Feb 15 '15 at 21:29
