Absolutely Beautiful

Optical Glow is the most beautiful, highest-quality glow ever made for Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro. And while we could explain to you that Optical Glow uses an optically-correct inverse-square falloff, rather than the gaussian approximation used by other glow effects, the bottom line is that it’s easy to use and just looks awesome.

Visual Effects

Optical Glow is perfect for professional visual effects work. With built-in gamma management, your glow always looks realistic, whether your footage is video, log, or even linear. Optical Glow offers tons of control, so whether you’re glowing a lightsaber, starship engine, police lights, or the neon signs in a futuristic dystopia, you’ll get the beautiful result you’re aiming for.
