Im still on Mavericks, so its not really an OS issue. It was more a general question rather than a specific problem, I just need to remember and work smarter (image sizes, etc). :-)

One way to do it is to use Sketch & Toon with the spline line type. Another way is to sweep the splines and apply a luminous material to the sweep.

Re: dynamics and in-points...
by andrew donaldson 6 years ago
FWIW I found the answer: Apply a Display tag to the object and keyframe the visibility from 0 to 100% when you want to mark the in-point, or make the object 'appear'. :-)

I think this is a point where you need to learn Expressions. It might be as simple as pick-whipping the position of iPad reflection to its' hero version, while reversing the position in space. This wi
