Thumbs up how can i make a brush stroke animation?

i would like to make a brush stroke animation like this.

it`s not exactly an afterEffects job, but i can`t think of any way to do it in maya.

paint effects maybe?

is it just a plane with alpha texture of brush, and it`s moving along curve?

using PFX atach to a curve you could do that in no time! simply assign your pfx bruch to a curve that has the shape you desire and go into your stroke, then animate the max-min clip to get the timing you want.
