I am trying to make a stroke go around an object in Boris Red, but cant seem to get the right effect. Similar to the Trapcode 3d stroke plugin, i want to make light streaks around a 3d cross in Red. Any ideas?

So does the light stroke have to follow the contours of the cross or just fly around it in 3D space?

The easiest approach might be to create a paint stroke, animate the stroke so that it moves in time, and then nest the stroke on the face of a 3D object, like a cube, cylinder or a sphere.

I hope this helps.
