Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Stacking treatments, part of Premiere Pro and After Effects: Enhancing Production Value.
…You can push this filmic glow technique further by…stacking the different treatments on top of each other.…Now, here we have a shot of a nice wedding,…and we've got the typical white suit and bridal vail,…and the bride also has this lovely color to her…skin that we might want to make glow even more.…Just pick a representative frame.…Select the original clip.…Hold option on Mac, alt in Windows.…
Drag it up to video track two to create a copy.…For this copy, I'll go to effects.…Apply my fast blur.…Repeat the edge pixels.…Puff it out a bit.…And put that in something such as an add mode…to blow out those highlights.…I'm going to decide how far to blow them out.…Maybe around there.…I love the way this veil is coming up and wrapping around her chin.…That's really nice.…But the whole scene is a bit too blown out.…I can try something less severe like screen.…That kind of works, it's a bit more of a…gauzy softness, but the whole scene's still too bright.…
That's okay, I can go ahead and stack another layer on…top of this with a different mode to get a different effect.…
