    Shine Help Please

      I have done this many times before, but for some reason, cannot figure what I am doing wrong.

       

      I have a really simple composition:  1 layer with an imported graphic (a psd).  I have parented it to a null and then put an adjustment layer on top, onto which I have placed Shine.

       

      Shine is set to Base on Alpha and I also added a level effect and set the channel to Alpha and then raised the Alpha Gamma a little, to about 1.5.

       

      For some reason, the Shine effect is bleeding over the entire background.  Even turning the ray length to 0, I have a wash of default red/orange over the entire screen.

       

      What have I missed that I can't get it to purely go behind the logo and not wash over the entire screen?

       

      AE 7

       

      Thanks for the help
