    Default Shine-like text effect

    Can anyone help me with a shine like text effect?

    Here's a sample of what I'm trying to do.

    http://www.trapcode.com/movies/smoke.mov


    I don't need to have the text rotate or have the smoke effect. I really just want light to shine through the text using Vegas Movie Studio (VMS).

    The sample above is a plugin for adobe after effects, which I don't have. I'm going to need to do this in VMS.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Effect is spoiled by the compression used. Not really 'rays' but close enough.

    Here is the vegas project file if it will load into VMS, if not I can describe how i did it.

    Default Got it that time, but

    My VMS can't open the veg files. The VMS files are .vf format.
    I did figure out how to create the effect on my own. I used a text media generator and added the light ray effect that panned behind the text. I had to tweak the light ray effect a little to get it to work good enough. It's not the best, but it looks ok.

    Thanks for the veggie. Once I graduate to Vegas, I'll use it.
