shatter effect troubles
on Nov 2, 2011 at 6:36:55 am

Hi I'm new to AE. Been having problems applying the shatter effect on my text using AE CS5 -- when the effect is applied everything has gone black and when it is removed the text reappears. Wonder if anyone could tell me why.. (the color is in 8 bit per channel).

Also wonder how I can make this effect to happen at certain times and not right from the start -- doesn't seem possible to set key frames?

Would be great if anyone could help:)

Always do a bit of digging yourself before asking questions- it builds character. Here's an example of useful stuff you can find:

Hey thanks very much for the link! Had done some digging but funny enough had not digged in the lib -- new to cow too.

It finally worked, but not until I actually applied the gradient layer though. Thanks again!

Louise
