OUGD603: Brief 04 - The Last Drop // Route Map Animation Completion

I have been finally able to complete the route map for the pub crawl, using adobe after effects. Which has been created using a layer mask, which hides the content which it masks. By animating the anchor points of the layer mask, I've been able to reveal the route in stages, point by point.

Doing it this way, using a mask, allows for no destructive animation. Being able to show and hide elements of the animation at any point.

The image above shows the paths used to reveal the map, on the very last frame of the animation. Each anchor point was revealed individually, so the mask follows the route around the map, revealing it point by point – difficult to explain, but I'm sure the video below will show you what I mean.
