Not sure the best way to reach Stephen Smith about a question from his dvd ?
In the beginning of chapter 8 where you have a paint write on effect happening, is that
an image that was put in under style/outline, and if so what image? I watched the rest
of the chapter and made a nice paint write on, but nothing that looked like the tease in the
beginning. Please help.

Bruce,
Thanks for purchasing my Motion Training DVD and supporting the COW.

Are you asking about the effect in the introduction of Chapter 8.1 at about 11 seconds into the chapter?

Also, the Creative COW Motion forum is a great place to reach me. If you ever feel you need to contact me directly you can always e-mail me:

Yes I am, nice effect.
I can see you have used a mask as well, but what was used for the fill of the write on & how? (if that makes sence)

I used the Shape Style Preset: Liquid, Ink Dilate 01.

I recall I duplicated the video clip of myself and placed the paint stroke in-between the two clips. Made a mask on the clip on top to cover up part of the paint stroke.

Hope that helps and best of luck.

The Shape Style Preset: Liquid, Ink Dilate 01 was what i was after, thanks,
by the way which sound effects from sound track pro did you use, because it was right on the money?

That sound effect came from Video Copilot's Designer Sound FX. A great SFX library in my opinion. The two SFX I put together to make the one are from the Swishes part of the library. And they are:
1st--Torpedo
2nd--Windy Swish

Hope this helps.
