Help with The Shine Effect tutorial

I understand the tutorial, but the the sample movie on the page with the [url=“”]tutorial has a fade in like effect with the bottle once the gradient moves across the screen. I wanted to know how to get that fade in effect that I’m seeing.

I’ll try to explain a little more in detail. I see the gradient go across the shape, but then it looks as though the bottle fades in from the middle out and replaces a white silhouette.

I believe then the mask comes over the bottle again yet this time it comes in as alpha 0 and goes to 100

i’m in the same situation. reefster, please add the rest of the tutorial. :slight_smile:
