Hi guys,

So I'm using saber on a logo, converted to shapes from illustrator (Each letter and element is a layer on its own). But I'm running into the problem where if I copy my path from the shape layer into the Saber layer, the glow creates a box around the object. (Also to add, I had the saber layer on full workspace size, but as soon as I pasted the path it was bigger so i had to scale it down.) This is where i think my problem is but cant get it right!

If anyone can maybe help me? Maybe you Andrew? Seeing as the AE Developers learn stuff from you and you not from them.
