    Can you describe how you did the “light leaks” layer?

    You should really upload this again with proper audio :) With headphones, 13min of Tutorial is pain to watch, unfortunately :(

    Am I the only one that can’t get any sound right after the opening animation? I can’t hear Lauri talking!

      Oh no! I actually forgot to duplicate the audio from the right channel to the left one… So most people should probably hear it ok, but if you have set your speakers in a way that only play the left channel then you won’t hear me speaking…. So sorry about that! My mistake! :(

      – Lauri

      Yes, I had the right speaker turned off at the time… Now I can hear you speak! Great work BTW!
