You might have to move your mask layer a lil to the right and up... be careful not to get

it too close to the edges where it is cut off..

#14. Tweak your positions on everything till you like your image.

Open the 'A Love that Lasts' text file.. resize it to what ever size you want.. I think I resized mine

15%.. You can judge.

Hide the mask and white bkg layer on the bottom.. Merge all the top layers.. don't forget your

copyright info for your tube.

#15. Duplicate the mask layer 2 times so that you have 3 layers of it.

Your layer palette should look like below.

On each of the mask layers apply noise effect

then 29% on the bottom one

Open your animation shop and paste as a new animation on its desktop

#18. Now hide the top mask layer and UN hide the middle mask layer.. have  the top merged layers and the white bkg

layer showing too. Do the same thing COPY MERGE.. over to animation shop and paste

Notice the heart animation has 15 frames to it.. and your new animation is 3 frames?  duplicate the 3 frames till you have 15 frames.. ok?

This you have done million times :) on the heart animation... drag F: 1 over to F: 1 of your new animation.. click hold and drag

not letting go of the mouse till you place the animation where you want it..
