Powerful interface
Red Giant 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.
Multi-color Presets
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.
