hey y'all im working on a project in which i have a solid(as a ground) on which i applied the effect grid.....my problem is that
1 - i want to make the lines of the grid shine like if i applied a glow effect but just to the lines...
2 - make the shine be progressive like if there was a flow, an "evolution", the shine has to be dynamic(for eg : like the lines of glow on a suit of a TRON LEGACY Movie character)
thank you for helping me giving me clues
Glows are easily achieved by duplicating a layer, applying something like Fast Blur and changing the blend mode to Add. Do this 4 or 5 times with the first duplicate blurred 4 or 5 pixels and the last blurred maybe 20 pixels. You'll end up with a nice glowing grid.
Pre-compose those layer and try applying the CC Light Sweep effect.
If you want something where the little energy spikes that travel across the grid are random that will take a bit more work. It would involve construction the grid from multiple layers rather than a single solid with the grid effect applied. You'd then apply CC light sweep to each layer individually and animate the center position of the light sweep.
