Ok. so i found a lightning effect that i like but it comes in three parts. After i download all three and install them how do i mount all three? is it as simple as droping them equally on the time line and they mesh together for the completed look or is there something else i must do?


thank you

Exactly how they combine is dependent on how the creator of the effect put it together, but generally you just need to stack all three parts on the timeline, yeah. Make sure the first frames line up, with layer 1 on the bottom and layer 3 on the top. Check the descriptions of each layer to see if any additional instructions are provided, as if you need to do anything else, that is where the instructions would be found.

Oh, thanks! biggrin :p smile Having a bit of trouble though. When I click "copy keyframe" or whatever that says, I can't figure out where to past it.
