Effect: How to make TEXT GLISTEN like it's hit by moving light?
I saw this tutorial of a Glistening Gold Text Effect, which matches my branding since I have gold letters too. Looked like it could be easily recreated in Hitfilm because of the SET MATTE effect.
I created a bright yellow rectangle over my text and wanted to clip it onto the text via Set Matte. Does it only work if the png mask is black or white, 'cause mine is gold - so midtone?
First of all it doesn't clip it onto my letters, and than I have bright yellow letters (the highlight), which is supposed to be revealed by the feathered out moving rectangular mask, and I get the black rectangle around the text because the layer is set to Overlay.
..Also wish that Overlay worked like in Photoshop and not made certain things dark instead of white, but that's another story
Is there another way around it?
