I'm currently trying to create an effect similar to the Jeweled skin effect from Twilight. I know a post already exist about this effect http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/2/980899 and is really useful. However, in my case I have to do this effect on a phone, ipad anyway (so, it's not really a typical "skin" effect).
Actually I used the combinaison of Trapcode Particular to create spots with Starglow. I put some glow too and used Roto via Mocha to follow the item and apply my effect.
I'm not really satisfied currently and would like to know if you have some Idea or advice to improve this effect (maybe do something completely different?).
So, difficult to find something on the web... A lot with photoshop like this one
(see the end) but it's on a face and fix image, not an animation.
I know that on this website there is a lot of very good person using after effect and hope you'll be able to help me.
