Are you interested in integrating cool glow effects into your video projects? It’s actually way easier than it looks when you use the FREE Glow FX Sample Pack from CinePacks! Check out this tutorial to learn how to use these glow animation effects.
Find theFree Glow FX Sample pack on the CinePacks website. This is a free pack, so all you have to do is provide us with your email address so we can send you the download link. Once you receive the link in your inbox, download and unzip the folder of free video effects. This free pack includes several free glow animation effects and video transitions (as well as a $5 off coupon if you’d like to purchase our full pack). Drag these glow effects into Adobe Premiere Pro. (Note: This is an Adobe Premiere Pro tutorial but these video effects are also compatible with Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas, and DaVinci Resolve.)
Drag the glow effects directly into your timeline. Right click the effects and select “Scale to Frame Size” (if needed), then change the Blend Mode to Screen or Linear Dodge (Add).
Turn on your keyframes for Position, Scale, and Rotation. Use these keyframes by adjusting their position, size, and orientation to track the movement of your glow animation effect; this allows you to move the effect along any path that you think looks good with your footage. (In this video clip, we move the blue glow animation effect down the dancer’s leg, then move the pink glow animation effect up the arm of another performer.)
To change the color of any of these effects, navigate to Video Effects → Color Correction → Color Balance (HLS) and adjust the Hue and Saturation sliders as desired. You can even create a color-changing effect by keyframing the Hue at the beginning of the clip. Scroll to the end of the clip, add another keyframe, and change the color.
