I am trying a tutorial at How to create a quick and easy Light Beam Effect in Adobe After Effects - YouTube which applies the CC Redial Blur effect over an image it looks very simple and straight forward but for some reason its not working for me.
Here is the project file http://tonyalepski.heliohost.org/AE.zip
If someone can help me figure out what is the problem that will be a great help !!
Many thanks !!
Your issue is quite simple. Tutorial author is using a PSD file with no background under the text (file with transparency) - you are using a jpg - file with gray background that is covering your rays. You have to remove background in photoshop and export it to AE without it or remove it in AE using some Keying plugins or simply masks.
Great !! Thank you very much !!
