Hi, I'm looking for something that looks like it has a very bright sun coming down, making everything look yellow/white/orange and possibly glowing.

Try the Caprica preset, based on the planet from Battlestar Galactica. An excellent preset by Oily.

try looking around for more presets for EffectsLab. Or just try playing around with the Grade object in Effectslab yourself. These programs are quite simple to get a grasp on. But if you're having trouble, check out the video tutorials. The grading video tutorials don't apply directly to EffectsLab, but the same principles apply.

If the preset is close to what you want, but not exactly what you want, then the best thing to do is just to tweak the preset here and there.

Woops, sorry I neglected to check your application before recommending. This one is very bright, as is this one, or this other one, or [url=this one here[/url]. Unfortunately, a good glow is much easier in Clab or Vlab, which have a Glow composite mode to simplify things.

If u want to create a glow in fxlab, layer a second clip over the first and blur it, then change the brightness of the glow using the brightness filter.

I hope that made sense. cool
