Applying a glow to text. Text box clips glow (glow is cut off at text box limits). How do I apply the glow so that I'm not constrained by the box? Is there such a thing as pre composing, as in After Effects?

[Chris] Is there such a thing as pre composing, as in After Effects?

Yes, placing layers in a group is just like pre-comping. If you put your text into a group and apply the Glow behavior to the group the glow will go out side of the text box.


Also, you may want to mess around with the Glow under the Style tab, it can go outside of the text box with out "pre comping". Hope this helps.
