Hello to all,

Maybe you remember this old game >

You will notice very nice (maybe retro) effect with shining letters moving making that soldier cast shadow.

I tried to recreate that effect but without success. I admit im not master at After Effects (using it for few weeks only) so maybe im missing something that is totaly simple.

I tried to make solid and text layer + some lights, arranged them in 3D space then play with modes and trackmats but couldnt get "ligths" go trough solid with trackmat text...what am i missing?

Trapcode's Shine, CC Light Burst, or CC ...whatever it is that's near Light Burst in the menu.
