Hey,

Just wondering how exactly to apply a "gleam composite" using EffectsLab Pro. I'm presuming you can because it is in the help manual for EffectsLab, but I don't know exactly what to do to get it onto a video. WHenever I open a new video, under the Object inspector it says composite is "Normal" and it is unchangable.

Any help with how to apply the gleam composite using EffectsLab would be great! Thanks.

In EffectsLab, the gleam composite option is only available for effects created within the program; you cannot apply a gleam to video layers.

On the timeline, under the name of the effect you want to apply a gleam filter to, you just click "Composite", and the different composite options will appear in the filter browser at top right of the screen. Click the gleam button, and adjust the controls to how you want them.

Well,

When applying a composite on a different object, while I do get more options, These are the only ones I get:

Normal
Add
Color Burn
Color Dodge
Darken
Difference
Exclusion
Hard Light
Lighten
Multiply
Overlay
Screen
Soft Light

Theres no "gleam" option as far as I can see. Now, the reason I was under the impression that I could use gleam in EffectsLab is because of the info about it on page 72-73 of the .pdf manual. Although there it shows it being used on an actual video or picture (obviously can't tell what te example is since its a still image).

So any other information would be helpful, thanks again! smile
