Hi guys.

I have a production logo I would like a moving light (Screen left to screen right) to pass through the letters of my logo. I can get the effect but I cannot get the light to move?

Any ideas?

Cheers

When you apply the gleam composite, you will get an origin handle on your footage. Just keyframe the start and end points, and it should animate just fine.

I figured it out now. It dawned on me just after I posted the request.
