Trapcode Starglow not working on text layers but is working on images??

Hi,

Recently installed Starglow on AE cs5 (mac) and im really confused!! If i import an image, such as "blarblar.jpg" and apply starglow to it, it works fine, all the presets are there being applied.

But if i create a new text layer and apply starglow i get nothing??? Ive tried applynig starglow to an adjustment layer above some text and still nothing apart from starglow on images?

am i missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated

thank you!

By default, Starglow uses Lightness to drive the effect. If your text is dark enough, you won't see anything.

Try two things, either change the Input Channel to Alpha. Or, make sure the text is white.
