Hey guys, when I add an effect to the text (CC Light Burst 2.5 for instance) it appears like the text is in some king of "invisible box", and the light burst effect does not go beyond the boundaries of this "box". Hope this makes sense, please help
You will have to add grow bounds, precompose the text layer or use an adjustment layer. It depends on your composition. The active pixel area of a text layer does not extend beyond the rectangular box that can be drawn around the text.
