I gave this a quick try this morning but something isn't quite right.
Maybe you can tell from the image what's going wrong ...

Very nicely written tutorial conbagui as usual. This is definitely on my to-do-list as well.
thanks for sharing.

I went through your whole tute one step at a time conbagui but it didn't come out in the end. I don't know where it went wrong but there was a few places in the tute where I don't know if I should have had alpha to selection or just hi-liting the layer. and the part where you are supposed to make the height into half...what is the reason for that? :oops:
I enclosed my xcf so maybe you can see where I went astray. thanks Molly

Hi Mike, would you please upload the .xcf file, I might able to figure out why you didn't come up with same result that I did.

Hi molly. I'm going to explain why your result came out a little different from mine.
1. The 3D Text is thicker than mine, so drop the Gradient layer (top layer) a little more. Instead of hitting the Down button 25 times like on the Step 7, go 40 times. Since you already did 25 times, all you need is to bring it down 15 more times.
2. Before you use the gradient Full spectrum, adjust the opacity 50% on the Gradient tool option, not on the Layers dialog.
Image
3. On the Gradient copy #60, the gradient is on the surface of the Text and not on the entire. Just select Alpha to selection on the entire Text and do over the gradient.
4. Same Gradient #60 layer, change the Mode to Screen
5. The Spotlight Blur layer have to be over the Gray and Black texture.
6. Delete the white Background layer, (I'm sure you know that).

Anyway, try that to see how it will turn. I hope this help.
