    You can do the moving white lines by using Motion guides in Flash (check out the help section)

    The light effect, as you call it, looks like alpha setting. First on the window, and then on the guys face. Just tween the alpha of the window first, and then make the face appear! The last "flash of light" is just a real quick all white panel that flashes so fast you can't really tell.

    Hope that helps.

    You can also do line draw... but that takes some time to master, or you can have the line already there and ... reveal it with a mask! Some creative masking can make it appear as though the line is being drawn. That may serve your purposes as well, but it really depends on how complex your lines are.

    Let me explain the mask thing, because its really easy.

    draw a simple curve on a layer (Layer1). Use a black bg and white for the curve
    add another layer above it (Layer2)
    extend the frames of the curve layer (Layer1) to frame 30. Lock layer1, you won't need it anymore.
    go to Layer2
    add a small square (without edges) to the scene at the beginning of the curve  you drew on Layer1
    now, add a keyframe (frame 2).
    Copy the small square and move it so it overlaps the first square. Position, rotate and stretch as needed.
    Keep doing this process for every keyframe
    When you're done, right click on Layer 2 and select Mask.
    Test your movie.. voila! Lines drawing themselves!
