Tracking dashed lines (without beam)???

Hey,
I try to create dashed lines which can be tracked to an start and end point. Beam effect does not fit because there are no further adjusments possible. Like dashed lines,... like on a regular path. Is there any other plugin or effect I can use to generate "advanced" lines that can be tracked?

Thank you!

Best, Tony

Create a line or a mask on a layer and drop in the Vegas effect. In the effect controls, assign Mask1 (or whatever) to the Mask/Path parameter.
Animate the Rotation parameter to move the dashes along the path.

I'm quite possibly overcomplicating this, but here's one method.

dotted "beam"
