Trapcode Shine's interface makes it easy to customize your own light effects. Fine-tune source point, ray length, shimmer appearance, colorization, opacity, and a full range of compositing modes.
For movie titles, choose from multi-color presets such as simple fire, green X-Ray, and Radioaktiv. Or for more subtle effects, you can extract colors from an existing logo or title, or make beveled effects with the alpha edges feature.
Flexible shimmer settings let you create automatic, loopable variations that add visual interest to light effects without the rendering overhead of complex compositing. Shimmer controls can also be used to create seamless loops of any desired length for attractive DVD backgrounds.
