New to Graffiti...Making the text burn
on Nov 22, 2006 at 1:55:38 am

I am stumped...how can I make the text I am creating in Graffiti burn with the fire plugin...can't seem to figure out how to apply it to the edges of the text. I see that I can use external media etc...but not how to tell it to use the text in the project...I know this has got to be easy...but I cannot find the answer anywhere.
Thanks,
Chad

You can do it with the fire filter. See out new searchable online documentation on our web site. This effect is described at the bottom of this page:

(I searched for "fire on alpha" )

Good luck and be careful with fire.

Thanks,
Yes I looked at this but I still cant seem to get it to work. I can get the fire to show up in the text but not around it tightly like its burning. I noticed that you can choose different media for your matte...however how do you choose to use the text your creating in the Graffiti itself,
Chad
