Shine effect on text

Postby wuzzle on 04/15/2009, 9:39 am

Hello,
I want to create something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhDn64_ilIg
I want my text to shine, I've got the Shine plugin from Trapcode, but I don't know how to use him in combination with a text layer.

Can anybody tell me how to create the effect on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhDn64_ilIg ?

Thanks!

you apply shine to the text layer,twirl down the colourize section set it to alpha then animate the source point.

I'm sorry for the (stupid) question, but I'm a beginner. Do you mean the SHINE PLUGIN from TRAPCODE?

i would simply use "CC Radial Fast Blur"....that's really easy and it comes with After Effects
