    Below are some questions that I hope can be answered to make my graphics look good. I think what I am trying to do is simple. I just don't know the term or how to do it.

    1. How do you make a shiney shape with a change of color, lens flare on it? (See Hearst bug)
    2. How do you texturize a shape like the GMA lower third?
    3. Is there a way to make your graphics have REALLY smooth and slick animations? (I know of the Easy Ease, etc.)

    Thanks!

    Let me try to help here...
    1.) Best advice for this is to make it a multi-layer shape. Have the top layer be a semi-transparent glass like texture with a candy gloss then have a flat or grandient solid underneath.
    2.) Learn how to use mattes and blending modes
    3.) Learn how to adjust your f-curves, just using easy ease is kinda generic.
