Gradient Glow Tutorial
To make text with a glow around it you will need
Eyecandy 4000 / Gradient Glow

Open up a canvas 500 x 300

Choose a font that is bold. I used berthside for this.
use my settings
Now whilst the ants are still active add a pattern or colour
or make it glass effect in eyecandy or just bevel in effects.
I used Super Blade Pro.

Select None.

Now to add the outline.
null out the stroke on your materials and choose the outline
