The first thing i do is select the ellipse tool and make a circle, the colour is transparent, then i change it to orange in a colour box. After that i select gradient mesh tool on the tool box at the side and put it at the side of the circle, the i change the gradient to yellow and it will fade to orange and look like a light reflextion on ball, the i repeat this at certain place it it will look like a shine ball. Then i make a star and colour it with red and put it on ball and that is it,I copy and paste the image on Photoshop and make alpha channel on photoshop as you teach me. i'm not good in english, so i'm so sorry if you dont know what i mean and this is the result:-

Ok, That is easy but you need time but i made only about 2 hour, first thing is i go to pain and and select the spray mideum size and chose red colour, then i spray on the white backgroud, only one click about 0.25 second and save it to a file then i continue spray it downward A BIT and save it to the same file with other name, then i continue this and make a word. the result is an animated writing image about 200 frame, NOTE:YOU NEED TO SPRAY ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE BACKGROUND WITH ANY COLOUR SO WHEN IT BE A PLUG-IN IT WILL SUITE, U NEED TO SPRAY, IF NOT, IT WOULD NOT WORK, IT IS LIKE THIS


DIA YOU SEE A GRAY SPRAY ALONG THE BOTTOM.

I have a new way of making the kind of help me plug-in, first, make the writeing any way with the spray on the bottom with white background , then you save it and import it in alamdv, then you mask all the word and open it frame by frame, a bit and a bit till a full word, dont mask the bottom spray then you export it to image in file and make the plug-in, this is faster way than my first way, i hope this help.
