You see this everywhere now, particularly in lower thirds. I just want to add a subtle light running along the border of a layer. I've been mucking with the Glow filters, but I don't think that's it. Anyone know the best/easiest way to do this?

Not exactly, but close. I'm talking about the effect you'd get if you used a light streak paint stroke along the edges of an object (not text.) I'm sure I can do it manually, but I was wondering if there was an easier way to do it with a preset behavior/filter.

Thanks for the reply!

OK, I lied. I can't do it manually. I spent way too much time on it. Basically, I want to create the same kind of glow you get with the Line Glow particle emitter, but have it follow a path. Anyone?
