Xanadu. Yes, that Xanadu

I have a client re-creating scenes from the 80's movie Xanadu. Basically, I need to put a glow around the actress like this:

If anyone has any idea what to do, I could sure use the help!

Thanks!

There's plug-ins that do this, Trapcode Shine comes to mind. If they are keyed on their own layer, you can do all kinds of cool edge effects and glows really easily. I have a free plug-in on my mac called "Godrays", might work for you, can't remember at the moment where I got it....

I'm a huge ELO fan, and even *I* hate Xanadu. For a minute I thought you meant "Xanadu: The Foam House Of Tomorrow" in Wisconsin, instead.

Entertaining film with some of ELOs best stuff. Hokey at times The dance scene with Olivia and Gene Kelly was well shot.

Youre working on the Blu Ray release huh? Instant buy for me

Hmmm, I thought of Charles Foster Kane's estate in Citizen Kane. I live right next to Wisconsin; I'll have to check out that foam house.

Plenty of off-the-wall stuff in Wisconsin: the Mustard Museum, the Toilet museum in Kohler, the House On The Rock... the list goes on.

if they are on greenscreen, white drop shadow, with distance set to zero, softness and opacity set to 100. Duplicate and stack the layers if you need a stronger effect.

Or duplicate the layer and fill the alpha with white and blur and transparency to taste.
