Chapter 15. Production Bundle Techniques > Using Other Glow Settings

Using Other Glow Settings

The Glow effect includes several properties that govern the color of the glow when you select A & B colors from the Glow Colors pull-down menu. Because the glow is actually a soft-edged gradient, you can specify the color of each extreme of the gradient, as well as the blend of the two. You can also set how the gradient transitions from one color to the other, and how many times it loops.

To use glow color options:

1.
In the Effect Controls window for the Glow effect, choose A & B Colors from the Glow Colors pull-down menu.

2.
To set the colors used in the glow gradient, specify colors for Color A and Color B.

Use the standard eyedropper tool or color picker controls.

3.
To set the relative blend of the A and B colors, set a value for the A & B Midpoint.

4.
To set how the gradient transitions from Color A to Color B, choose an option from the Color Looping pull-down menu (Figure 15.65):

Figure 15.65. You can choose how the glow gradient transitions from one color to the other in the Color Looping pull-down menu.


Sawtooth A > B

Sawtooth B > A

Triangle A > B > A

Triangle B > A > B

5.
To repeat the Color Looping option, specify the number of Color Loops (Figure 15.66).

Figure 15.66. Repeat the looping pattern by setting a value for Color Loops.


6.
To start color loops at a different point in the looping cycle, specify the Color Phase.

The glow color gradient appears according to the options you selected (Figure 15.67).
