Rotation Shine's Light Rays Using Phase within Shimmer...

Is this how you do it? In terms of rotation, I am not having any success animating my light rays. I keyframe two points and set the degrees from 0 to 180. After previewing, nothing. Also, I set up the loop the same way, nothing.

Shimmer does not rotate the rays.

Use the layer's Rotation property to rotate.
Or rotate the input to Shine.

I would prefer not to rotate the actual layer, so how to you rotate the input?

If I duplicate the layer and change the copied layer's opacity to 0, rotate it, then I should have a rotation. Is this the hard way?

Rotating a copy doesn't do well since the images reflections do not match the image. So how do I rotate the input to Shine. This sounds like something very easy, but at the time, I think I may be overlooking something.

Huh? You have to rotate your image but use Shine on an adjustment layer above it. Do this in a separate comp if you don't want other layers to be affected by Shine. Shine itself offers opacity controls and blend modes so use them for more refinement. BTW, the Rotation parameter for the Shimmer is simply a input parameter to the formula that will vary the noise that creates the shimmer effect (just in case you wanted to know). I think the noise is based on simple sinus/ cosinus operations (Perlin?) in which case it would be technically correct to name the parameter "Rotation" but it's quite confusing on the user end. Maybe a candidate for a rename, Peder?

Actually, the parameter is not called "Rotation" - it is called "Phase"!

And yes, it is perlin noise so I think "Phase" is quite appropriate, it is the current phase of the noise.

Ah, didn't check, just reffering to the other post. But thanx for the clarification anyways. (kinda funny how one even confuses parameter names on a tool used 3 times a week *giggle*)
