Ok, i’ve been trying to create an animated title for a DVD project i’m working on. What I want to happen is the title will fade in and then light will be cast from the back of the title and create shadows from the letters. When I do this though I cant seem to control the distance the shadows are cast and the light from the lamp i am using takes up nearly the whole screen.
I’ve tweaked the lamp settings, distance, energy and everything to stop this from happening but nothing seems to work nicely. Does anyone know how to fix this or know a program that can generate the kind of title that i want to create? If you’ve ever seen any of the Mankee Destroy Star Wars Galaxies movies then you have an idea of what kind of title i’m going for. Any help would be appreciated. Take care.
