Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Stylizing the graphics with Lux, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
In order to better blend these graphics into our scene, we're going to use another…Trapcode effect named Lux. Let's start by creating a layer Solid.…Go up under Layer > New > Solid. Make sure the solid is the same size as…the composition by clicking Make Comp Size.…And let's make sure that we have a white solid.…Go ahead and click OK to set your white solid.…Now to create the Lux effect, we need to go under Effect > Trapcode > Lux.…
Now nothing's going to happen at first because Lux actually works with two…different layers. We've applied Lux to our layer of Solid…but nothing's going to be generated until we add a light to our project.…So go up under Layer > New > Light. Now let's change the color of our light.…If yours is blue, we'll change it to white.…If yours is white, just leave it set to white.…We can make sure its a point light and leave the fallout set to none without…casting shadows and then click OK. Now notice this has actually created a…bright light in the center of our scene. Now I'm not seeing the control handles, so…
