Hi Andrew its Andrew. At the beginning of this tutorial there is the zoom out of the horizon with www.videocopilot.net text. Looks cool! Would you happen to have a project or tutorial that shows how to create the background and zoom out like that? Many thanks!

As many have said here, your tutorials are very awesome and helpful.

Hey Andrew.

Thank you so much for taking the initiative and putting this awesomeness online. I am in school currently and I cannot learn quick enough. You have helped fill the void.

I do have one question that seems to be escaping me. I am using Creative Cloud and when I do everything my flare does not dissolve, disappear, or anything. Looking at your tutorial here it looks like you aren't doing anything different yet your flare is gone at the end. Mine isn't.

2 second video with animation on first second but end of flar stays on screen for a whole second. It looks like crap. Is there a step I missed? I feel I have gone through this like 10 times now.

I have tried to download the movie and when I try to extract it says the file is invalid. I have downloaded others with no problems. I like to work along with your tute so that I can get it right without using extra bandwidth

Top notch stuff. Added a luma key in Premiere to kill the black, but keep the flare and make the lower third I was looking for. Keep up the great work.

BTW, is there a better way to kill the black and overlay the title? Works well enough as is. but I see a slight change in brightness. Just wondering..

What if I want this reversed? Instead of the letters coming from left to right, they come from right to left (going with the same way as the lens flare)

please let me know!!
Eric
01/17/2012
Ken, change the shape from "Ramp Down"(from the tutorial) to "Ramp Up", and instead of animate the offset from 100% to -100%, animate it from -100% to 100% instead.

To Mr. Andrew Kramer,

Hi, I'm new to this stuff, and this tutorial is the easiest one I can found in your very helpful website, the only problem is that, it's not working.

I think, it needs an update or something.

That was really great, never though that you could create so much with just text animation settings. I now understand a little bit more on how to use Blending and Masking technique to improve appearance of the my animation. Thanks Andrew.

Jeez man, I think this is the easiest tutorial you've done, well out of the ones I tried. It was pretty simple after you remember what to do, but my friends were amazed at what I did. I also spiced the flare up a little by getting Pro Presets 2.

It's a very nice thing, only that Andre Kramer is too fast on the teachings thus making it difficult to catch up with him.
sri

it is very useful. thanks to u. But small doubt
in lens flare you are change normal to add. in my pc it is not visible. pls tell me how to add that.
no name
01/03/2011
I'm sorry about my poor english...but I really want to tell you how to do, so...XD

If you right-click on the layer name of lens flare, and find the "Blending Mode", then you will see "add" in it.

I hope you'll understand what I'm trying to tell.XD
