Hi,
I am going to be creating a scene where a womans ball of yarn drops to the ground and rolls. As the yarn rolls I want to create a effect where a spark of light travels down the piece of thread.

Is this possible? and does anyone know how to do it?

Would help a great deal,

Thank yoouu

It's possible, but the techniques vary on the nature of the shot or shots. You'll help yourself a lot if you can devise a storyboard. Put what you intend the viewer to see in drawing on paper. Indicate what takes place during the shot(s).

Without knowing that crucial starting point, it's fruitless to recommend anything. It also helps to know your level of AE espertise; we may recommend something that's totally over your head.
