And there you have it, a simple way of adding lighting effects to existing footage just to add some more excitement and drama to the clips. A lot of it comes down to picking an appropriate clip that enhances the footage and necessary using Scale, Rotation, Opacity and Effects to go ahead and bend that footage around to be more of a lighting effect than a hero in it's own right. Done correctly, it looks like you spent a lot of time lighting the original scene or it just makes it more interesting to watch. It's a nice improvement. It's a good trick to add to your toolbox. Have fun!
