Hi

I'm a newbe and can't figure out how to make the light with the text in the first four seconds of this video.

Anyone who has an idea of how i can do it?
It might be easy, but maybe I just can't see the forrest for trees.
I will be so greatfull :)

It could have been made in a 3D app, but it looks very similar to a technique used by Andrew Kramer in this tutorial, Ancient Titles

Got it, that's a lens flare, and strangely enough, probably made from company who made the tutorial I just linked.

VideoCopilot Optical Flares

Here's a link to a tutorial for creating lens flares without plugins,





If you google, you will find other free lens flare tutorials that can help you achieve different looks.
