Animating Drop Shadow and Bevel with Light Sweep
on Jun 21, 2017 at 2:53:44 am

Hello again,

I have another question that I can't seem to figure out.

I am adding a light sweep to my titles and I want the light sweep to look as though it is creating a drop shadow and bevel for every letter as it goes by.

How am I able to do this so that the drop shadow and bevel only animate simultaneously with the light sweeping crosshair? Or would I have to literally create a separate title for each letter?

Many many thanks!

Use an adjustment layer. Mask out a narrow section, add your effects, and animate the position to move across the text.
