    This sounds like a great tutorial. However, I don’t find it useful since the video resolution is so poor whether watching in normal or full-screen mode. Is there any chance you can produce better video or post a narrative tut. It would be greatly appreciated…

      Hi Tony,

      the video is in 1080p resolution, you only need to make it full screen. If that doesn’t work, I’ve added the link to the YouTube video so you can watch the tutorial there and select the 1080p version from the gear icon. Hope this works for you

        Yes, YouTube is perfect…don’t know why the one above is blurry, but thank you so much for accommodating my request. Also, YT has the transcript so “…two birds with one…” 🙂

        Superb effect *and* tutorial…kudos. Thanks, again!
