Hello.
I am trying to find any information and/or tutorials on animated text tracing. What I am after is a moving light that traces my text - not a light burst from behind the text or the flashlight effect that lights up as it's rolled over the text. Just a light that traces over the text. I would like to be able to do this in PS/imageready using motion tween. Any information and/or tutorials would be appreciated. Sorry but I have been unable to find a good examples or tutorials showing how to do this.

It saounds more like a job for Flash than anything else. Animations are always much larger than a flash job. You should look into Flash examples and then use a free or cheep flash creation product.

I do have flash but still would need a tutorial as my knowledge of flash is limited. I have not been able to find a tutorial on how to trace text - flash or any other way.
