so basically I want to get the Fast and Furious title look, I like the flares behind the writing. I found an (COUGH) AE tutorial, and thought I can do that. But frankly I am struggling to make the flares do what they should. It there a good tutorial on light flares / steaks. And yes I have see ones on using particles and that seems way overkill. One challenge I have is I can use a flare to make a light then use the anamorphic flare effect to make the streak and it looks fine but the big light I don't want on screen and if I move it off screen the flare moves with it and disappears.
I'm doing something wrong... ideas?
