Odd little template that simulates the effect of opening a shutter on a camera (bulb setting) and "drawing" with a light source in total darkness, a.k.a. Light Painting.

Default setting is a straight underline as in the opening sequence. There are parameters for five oscillators that control the light source path and two additional oscillators to control the speed of change of two of the previous oscillators. There are many (unlimited?) unique paths that can be created.

Since the paths can travel in Z-space, camera sweep and tilt controls are added to provide that perception of depth.

There are controls for Trail Life, light source size and ending size, the color (or color gradient), glow customizations, and for creating particles from the line.

This effect is great for opening/closing title sequences.

Note: this effect defaults to 10 seconds. If time change (by stretching in the storyline) is required, it is recommended that the time length is set before setting oscillator parameters to prevent "fragmenting".
