That's the spirit fellers...

wish I was an expert like you Noddy.

In fact, if we were ALL that good, there'd be no need for a forum at all, hey?

It`s not about being an `expert` its about trying to google first. Seems to be 90% of queries here can be answered by a google search. I do wonder sometimes if google only exist on my pc. But I do concede a less `edgy response` may have been more appropriate for some noobs to google.

Heck, you could even do a search on creative cow for the much treasured `FAQ` etc...

Peace out.

There is also a tutorial here from Andrew that would be good for that.

To those who tried to lend a hand, thanks! You're what makes a forum, a community! :) I've been on DVXUSER for many years and I don't think I ever dropped a lump of coal on the new guy.

As for you other three (LifeType, Noddy, darylsblog), geez, I know it can be frustrating seeing the "how do I" questions and if that's your case then move on and don't help the little grasshopper.... Pretty selfish... Ever think that some people do hit Google but come up short due to poor searching terms on that specific topic?

I think Andrew is a great dude and I plan on sticking around his forum to support it when I can and to support his products so get used to simplified questions coming from me, I'm new, we all started everything pretty much from that same position: new.....

The new guy,
Jay

Hey amber, no biggie. I'm working on getting my skills up so I guess I should expect some of the guru's to rough me up when I ask basic stuff. hehe

Agreed with him, that would really help you. Also buy some AE DVDs by Andrew, it will take you into depths.

Here's a tutorial on how to do it in photoshop:
http://abduzeedo.com/beijing-2008-logo-light-painting-photoshop
This can easily be translated into AE since many of the effects are the same. But afterward you might want to wiggle the opacity or glow effect kinda like Aharon Rabinowitz did in the Creative Cow After Effects tutorials.

I once stumbled on the this tutorial several months ago and never been able to find it since (even after several hours searching google). The guy used a piece of green tape on his finger and I think used motion tracking, I think.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
