duplicated

**TIP: We will be adding one sparkle per layer,
The method is basically the same for each sparkle layer:
We will be opening and closing the layers visibility
to be able to see  and follow the path.
At the end we will delete the layers that we didn’t use,
and save the unmerged files into Animation shop.

3…:: Close the visibility of all the layers , except for the one at the bottom.
Click on it to activate it.

4…::  Set sparkle tube in white color, size 130
place the sparkkle on top of the letter of your choice
to mark where the tear will end up.

tear1

5…:: Change size of sparkle to size 45
Click on first layer on top to activate it
Copy(11)of Raster 1
Add the “Sparkle tear” at the corner of the eye
Now we have top and bottom layer defining the path.

tear last

6…:: CLOSE THE VISIBILITY of this top layer.
(We will continue adding Sparkles
starting from the top layer to the bottom layers)

7…:: Click to activate second  layer from top Copy(10) of raster1
and open it’s visibility.
Change sparkle tube SIZE 65 and apply

tears

8…::Close the visibility of this Copy(10) of Raster 1
And  click to select and open visibility of  the next one down
Copy(9) of Raster 1
Apply sparkle tube SIZE 65

first tear

9…::Close the visibility of this Copy(9) of Raster 1
And  click to select  and open visibility of the next one down
Copy(8) of Raster 1
Apply sparkle tube SIZE 65

second tear

And so on until we have fill the whole path with sparkles to mark the tears.

** TIP: To have an idea in how your sparkles are lining up,
play by closing and opening the visibility if the layers.
To see how they will look once animated, close the visibility of all the layers
and open one by one ,starting from the bottom and up.
