Why am I getting no result from this? the v shaped matte should be working but I'm just getting black...any idea?

Try using luminance or alpha as your setting rather then value.
You would choose your setting based on the source of the matte.
Hope this helps.
In Workspace, move "the branch 'Draw halo'" below and into "the branch 'Composite - Untitled'".

Thats it!!!! why does that have to be? All I did was connect it to the main composite with a new layer, and hid the layer... like you said..
That shouldn't make any difference... I guess it needs to be in the main composite to be "seen" even if its not going to be.. well, seen.
that doesn't make too much sense..but it worked
Combustion is layer based. Like a Pyramid, the top is what you get, everything below is whatīs make the composite.
Donīt make the schematic view fool the eye, always look in the Workspace.

I understand that. but I didn't change the order of anything, I just drew a lin from the draw halo branch to the main composte, made a new layer, and then hid that new layer. I didn't change any order..
