I'm a beginner to Blender and 3D authoring in general. I would like to mimic a text intro animation sequence as depicted in the first 5 seconds of this video: https://youtu.be/kzyFBlNRohs.
I have tried rendering 2D text with a glossy material. I added and animated streaks using a glare node as described in this video tutorial: https://youtu.be/-LuPck9FJ4Y. I changed the angle offset from 0 to 180, but the streak rotation is not what I would like.
I think what I need to do is, for each character: 1. Create a plane on top of the character 2. Somehow render streaks to this plane 3. Rotate the plane
Can you provide any help/assistance to a noob? Thanks.
