What version do you have, Cool 3D 3.5 or Production Studio? This is possible with Production Studio, however I don't know about 3.5.


Here's a quick example I threw together.


Instead of lines, I used an ellipse. The scale of the ellipse was animated for it to grow larger, then the transparency was set in the last frame to 100%. I simply copied the ellipse, then changed the Show/Hide to show for each ellipse 5 frames later. I also adjusted the end frame for each. The first finishing sooner, the last ellipse uses the entire duration of the animation.

Sounds like this is more what the poster is after.

I believe it can be done in COOL3D PS but not nearly as easy as it is in this AE tutorial.
