Hello, im new to after effects, so please write understandable answers to me :)
I am having a problem with After effects, im trying to add some cool lightning and glow to an explosion, i am using the tutorial from video co-pilot where he leanrs you to create and explosion in a city : and my problem is happening at 09.49 (If this info helps you!)
But, when im trying to add glow after i have puttet in a adjustment layer and done a circle around the explosion, then when i press stylize -> glow the explosion is just getting a ring of a very strong white colour, and i can't get it looking nice...
If u did understand that, i hope someone then can help me :)
It sounds like you have the technical part done right. For the aesthetics, you'll need to tweak the Glow settings. Use the menu Help>Effects Help in AE to find out more info on a specific effect/plugin that ships with AE.
Also, please use the COW's AE Basic forum should you have newbie questions. It'll help yourself and others in both the short and long-run.
