Tutorial: Generate a Volumetric Light Effect on Animated Text

BCC Rays Cartoon in the Adobe After Effects CS3

This tutorial is going to use BCC Rays Cartoon 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.
