So, when I go to push the light source behind the text, it doesn't move itself behind the text. Unless I swap the layers so the Adjustment layer and light source are behind the text, they are always in front. The problem is that I don't get the effect. Why does it react differently for me? Other than that, I love the tutorials.

Some things are missing from the tutorial. It comes around the rotation of the solid grey floor and moving it. He scales it but when I do the scale it is too much and warps my shadow to wide...I give up on this one!

Hey guys,

I tried this, but I get really ugly crispy artifacts around the light source.
You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvcn99wPIic

Any ideas? And no, its not the antialiasing. I tried several options, always the same.

Help!

I continued watching the video and heard you say F4 when you brought up the MODE field a second time. Unfortunately My work Mac F4 is set up for something completely different. Can you let me know how to get to it the long way? Thank you so much for the excellent tutorials. Even a noob like me can follow along (until the MODE thing) hehe

at 7:28 he pulls up the "Mode" tab to change the light layer from Normal to Screen. How do you pull up the "mode" tab? I hear him clicking something on the keyboard but can figure out how to do that. Thanks!
