Many designers love hot, glowing looks. However, the After Effects Glow plug-in is available only in the Professional edition, and is not all that intuitive to use. This two-part module demonstrates how to use the same plug-in to get two quite different looks: "inside" glows for full-frame footage, and "outside" glows to create a halo or aura text, logos, and any other object with an alpha channel. It also demonstrates a quick and easy way to get glow-like halos for those who do not have the Professional edition. Get a taste for this training series with this free module! Chris Meyer of Cybermotion takes us through it.
