Hi,
Really a great tutorial but I'm block at 14:49. I don't have any mode available for my smudge layer, is that because it's a 3d layer ?
So no mode available and no alpha option too.

I've followed several of your tutorials and this is one of my favorites. I animated the noise inside the orb (the "energy") using the expressions I've learned as well from your tutorials. Really easy to follow and very informative. Thank you so much! (And I got the typing joke.) :)
