After Effects FCP X Tutorial

Generate a Volumetric Light Effect on Animated Text

In the latest Boris FX podcast, learn how to use Boris Continuum Complete’s Rays Cartoon filter in Apple Final Cut Pro to generate a volumetric lighting effect on an animated text element. The BCC Rays Cartoon filter will also give the text the appearance of being made of neon lights. We’ll complete the effect by using the BCC Light Sweep to add a light sweep across the face of the text element and then we’ll use the BCC Colorize Glow filter to provide a soft glowing look.

If you don’t have Boris Continuum Complete, you can download a free demo here. BCC works in a whole slew of hosts, so check it out, even if you’re not a FCP user.
