I'm currently editing together a project where I've been asked to add a "glow" effect to some figures in the background of a scene. There are 10 or so scenes where this effect must be applied, so I decided to do a test and send to the client.
The first scene I selected had three figures in it (two in the background, one in the foreground), so I used the Rotobrush Tool to individually separate the three figures from the original video clip. I then placed two different colored glow effects behind the two figures in the background. The figure in the foreground was then placed on top of each of the layers to hide any overlapping that may have occurred. The client was happy with the look, but all in all this took about an hour or so for a three second (0:03) clip.
My question is, is there a simpler/more efficient way to achieve this same effect, or does it look like I have to spend the extra 9 hours working on the remaining clips using the same method? Any suggestions would help
