Did you watch this tutorial?

Sorry, but I'm not clear yet what your question is. Are you trying to get the glow not to show up on the canvas? Get the whole effect to disappear? Change the length of the effect? Is there a particular part of the forelinked tutorial that is confusing you?

Ah, well that's simple. When you create a new effect, you can type in whatever duration you want. Once its on the timeline, you can use the crop tool to drag the end to whatever length you want. Or, right-click the name on the timeline and select Set Duration.
