Deep Glow

Generates a beautiful, physically accurate glow. You’ll never want to touch After Effect’s default glow again.

Description

Deep Glow gives you the best looking glow right out of the box, even whilst working in a non-linear color space. It features intuitive compositing controls to assist in refining your glow results. Deep Glow is also GPU accelerated for speed and features handy downsampling and quality controls which can also be leveraged to achieve unique results (grainy or stylized glows).
