    Im exploring the capabilities of Glintworks. I am wondering if there is a way , with 1 control, to control the position
    of 3 glints. There seems to be a master control slider at the top of the interface, but it doesnt seem to do anything.
    I can control each glint, but hope there is a way to control them all. Also, is there a preset library available?

    By one control, do you mean a single application of the Glintwerks effect, per layer?

    With a single effect, you can control and animate the location and movement of up to three glints. I’m still learning the tool, but it looks like you can control size, position and angle separately for 3 glints, but they all share the same color, glow, gradient and other appearance settings.

    If you want different color glints, it appears you’ll need separate effect nodes. (but there’s ways and there’s ways to shift hues… go ahead and experiment!)

    You’ll find the Glint Presets by clicking on the sample glint… that brings up the Glint Editor.
    You can save your settings here too.

    Let us know how you’re doing!

    Hi Scott:
    I meant a master position control that would allow me to control Glint 1/2/3, all part of the same “node”. I know I can keyframe each of the glints and move them that way, but I just want to slide them all at once. The first setting control “Target” has a position control that does nothing apparent..
    the “Glint” control only controls Glint 1…. Which control can move all 3 simultaneously?

    OK, I figured out how to do it with a simple expression linking the glints ,giving the subsequent glints a minor offset. Works for me.
