Every designer has their own 'recipe' that works for them, and here you'll find three different strategies that will give your compositions a little extra bit of zing.

"...You'll see a simple composition with three subtly different glints traveling along the edge of the lower 3rd element. Then walk through how it's done. You can also follow along by downloading a After Effects project (AE CS3 only)."
