Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a filmic glow, part of After Effects Apprentice: 15 Creating a Sports Opening Title.
Okay, we are partway through our client change list, and I just realized I…haven't saved in a while.…So let's go ahead and make sure we save our current project.…And indeed I might go ahead and Increment and Save again just so I can have a…version to go back to in case I don't like the changes I make from here forward.…Now, I am up to Final Project 3.…I will go back to the Final Comp and another comment that our client had is he…felt everything looked a little too--well clean and video and graphic--and they…wish they had a bit more of a hot, intense glow.…
What they're describing is more of a filmic look, which usually means…overexposed and saturated.…Well, we can do that. And there's a trick we taught you a little while…back called Filmic Glow.…Let's run through that again.…Filmic Glow works really well when you already have an edited together series of layers.…You just go up to Layer > New > Adjustment layer.…It's over your entire composition, including all of the layers below,…including your transition. That's great!…
