    Hey guys,

    Im really new with Unity. Im not sure if this is the correct place to post this thread but im trying to create an animation similar to what I have attached (created in photoshop)

    Timing is a bit off, but I think that the general idea should be clear

    this will*be for a HUD layer using Unity's UI tools

    i think unity is a bit overkill for your job. maybe macromedia flash would be an easier choice.

    Flash is passé. Unity is fine and free. Flash is neither.

    I think a tweening library like iTween might be a good place to start. Also for the glow you could use a additive texture.

    Yeah Macromedia Flash is a good choice to make your animation and it will give you the best quality animation. Please share if you face any problem in making that in Macromedia Flash!
