Light Streak around Mask

star writeonI have no idea what to call this project, but it uses a star-shaped mask and a streak of light draws around the star, sort of like a comet. I used Vegas to create the line, with one segment. I duplicated that layer and made it a very short segment on the top layer. I boosted the light and added a blur. I also added an adjustment layer with Trapcode Starglow and Colorama to give it some pizazz, not to mention a camera for a bit of movement.

This shiny bling style project contains editable text .

There is one texture associate with the file, which is included. The glints are made with Trapcode Starglow.

Everything other than the text layer is switched over to “shy”. So, if you want to see the other layers, turn off the comp shy switch.
