Red Giant Software Ships Radium Glow(June 23, 2008)
Unlike most glow filters that just blur the source video, Radium Glow provides pinpoint control over the glow, with editable shapes that can generate precise outlines or create glimmering points. The advanced edge controls, built-in masking, and output controls in Radium Glow let you mimic real light behavior. The three plug-ins can be used to add neon-shaped glows to text, or be combined with Trapcode Particular or other plug-ins to create dazzling sparkle and shimmer effects. Radium Glow supports numerous host applications for the low price of $99 USD.
Radiums intelligent area selection system makes the image glow where the source is the brightest. Bright parts of the subject glow larger, much like the result of widening a real cameras iris. This yields natural-looking halos and sparkle that cannot be replicated with other glow effects.
Radium Glow offers three different glow plug-ins. The set includes advanced masking and intensity controls, Glow Lite for simple controls to apply a glow quickly, and Glow Edge for applying glows only around the edges of objects. Four quality levels and full 32-bit floating-point rendering let users find the right tradeoff between speed and detail.
Unlike other glow plug-ins, Radium Glow uses shapes to generate a glow. Simple circles and star shapes are included, along with a library of 10 other shapes to enable sophisticated glow effects. Glow can even use any source image as a shape, giving users powerful creative control.
