So, I have a pretty groovy looking portal thing going on but I know I need a glow to be cast on the surface around it. How?
You'll have to basically roto a rough shape on a grade layer then use color correction effects to brighten things up.
This video is specifically about fire, but the basic techniques apply to any glowing object or energy field.
Thanks for that, Triem23! That worked really well and was a great help! I need to tweak it a bit but it worked for what I needed. The glow on the ground is starting to look awesome but I need to add a glow to the person walking away from the portal now. Now, if I can figure out how to remove the car that shows up in one shot and the immediate next shot (from a completely different angle shot on a separate day, mind you) is gone. ;P
