I don't know that much about flash so maybe someone else will have a better solution, but you could draw the trail of dots & then just use an animated mask layer, pulling the mask across the page to reveal the dots. The help files should have a tut on masks I think.

i flash all day and mike hit the nail on the dot..masks would be the best option for revealing somethin in a timeline..so draw your final image make it a movie clip in the mc timeline add a layer turn that to a mask and create your shape then turn it into a graphic and set up your tween......whala insta dot drawing..
