    It's complicated, and probably time-consuming, but the effect should be relatively easy.

    Before you get the line moving, you need to develop the zooming-in text-effects. Basically, type out the text you want, and make sure you get the text correct first time cos there'll be no turning back from here, then 'mocify>break-apart' that text, and separate each letter into separate MCs. These MCs you have to develop by adding a tween for each, depending on what effect you want for it - such as the zoom in.

    Once all these are done, and it will take a little time, then wrap the whole thing into an MC, and create a tween around that MC. That will get the effect to get the line moving.

    There are some programmes around that will help you do all this, but I couldn't name any. It's worth doing it all yourself one time, then you'll have a base for the next time you want to use the effect.

    Good luck. Let me know how you get on.
