In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a glint effect in After Effects. Keep in mind this is not limited to text. This glint/shine can be used in many ways.

A glint effect in After Effects can be used in many different projects. It gives a moving shine across an object. In this tutorial I used text as my object, but you can use anything else. This effect would be especially powerful on sunglasses, tech products, etc. It is a very versatile After Effects technique. It also helps you get a good grasp on alpha mattes and masking inside of After Effects.
