Apologies for the lack of updates, life’s been pretty busy!
Today I’d like to share with you a neat little trick I’ve learned in After Effects for achieving really nice quality glow. The built-in glow in After Effects is okay, but it lacks enough control and it’s not very easy to composite correctly onto any background. Here’s a comparison in terms of visuals/compositing:
The technique is actually dead simple – it’s all about stacking multiple clones of your layer, with different amounts of blur/opacity. This way you’ve got a bit more control, but more importantly how to composite your glow.
