Skywriting in AFX ????
Hi to all,
Does anyone have a way to make realistic skywriting with an alpha channel to be layered on an existing video clip?
Having trouble getting the wispy, half blown away look.
thanks in advance for any help.

How are you attempting to do this?

I'd try something in one of the particle generators (if you have them) or base an effect off of a stroke generated from a mask path.

thanks for the replies, the tutorial will be good, Ill do it anyway. I ended up getting it done with photoshop. I rendered the image as a PNG out of AFX, put it in Photoshop and used a smudge brush and a few blurs. It worked really well.
again, I appreciate the replies.
