Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Boosting highlights, part of Premiere Pro and After Effects: Enhancing Production Value.
…We originally developed this glow technique when working with 3D…footage that we had to cut into nicely processed video footage.…3D renders just sometimes don't have quite dramatic quality…to them that a nicely graded piece of film does.…So, we needed to find a way to bring a 3D render up to that level.…Now in this case, I'm going to go into…After Effects because it gives me some more…options on different effects I can apply to the layer I'm using to add the glow.…
I'm going to select it, right click, replace with…After Effects composition, and here we are in AE.…I can duplicate this clip on top, or…I can take advantage of After Effect's adjustment layers.…Adjustment layers make a copy of the…composite underneath, apply an effect to it,…and then use blending modes to mix the back on top of the original composite.…So, I'll choose my adjustment layer and…I'll pick an effect from the blur category.…Now, in addition to the Fast blur that we used in Premier Pro, we have…a lot of other blurs to choose from, and each has their own unique look.…
