I am new to the forums and also new to using Motion, which seems like a complete headache, I have a project at the moment where in a promotional movie I need a logo and any on screen text to appear flaming around the edges or on fire.
Does anybody know an easy route to doing this or a link to any helpful tutorials?
Hey Peter I am trying but I just cannot get the emitter to latch on to the outline of the logo, I have logo as a png from photoshop any ideas on the work flow I should be following and the sort of spec for the logo?
Thanks man, thought I was totally alone on this one!
Peter was right on recommending the Corona emitter. I think the key is replacing the Shape=circle to Shape=Geometry... then treat your logo as a shape (or shapes) instead of text. Your shapes can be invisible, so you may just trace around your text... and conform your emitter to take on the shape.
