Creating a glow using the Ambient Occlusion pass

So the level of energy in our stadium is really looking great, but there is a particular zone that's really left out of the process so far, and that's the base around the platform. You'll see there is sort of a dark region here underneath the base where our pistons are. And what we want is we want to have these pistons not feel like pistons but tubes of energy pumping life into this platform, and so we're going to do that with a very special pass called the Ambient Occlusion Pass. That's going to give us a lot of extra detail that we can use as the basis for our glow. I'm going to go and show you the Ambient Occlusion Pass. If I go into the Video folder and into the Stadium Pass/ Special Passes folde,r I'll just double-click on that and here in the Footage window I leave the caps lock and in the Footage window, I want to scrub forward in time and you can see the Ambient Occlusion Pass on its own.

It is really beautiful and it has been used for amazing effect ...
