I saw the tutorial on this, but was confused on if it is effects lab, vision, etc...

So, in composite lab... do i bring up the clip i want to glow the eye on, then import media with that same clip and then mask out the eye on the top layer so you can see the eye on the 2nd layer and just apply the gleam to that masked eye?
And if so, can you tell me how to just apply it to the eye--not the whole frame?

Thanks

Also, on this, the scene is a freeze frame, so there is zero movement at all in the scene once i apply it.... so, the eye won't move at all

To clear up this first part, I believe all the tutorials were made with VisionLab, but all those things (except lightning) also apply to CompositeLab or EffectsLab (sometimes both).

Correct

That's what the mask does. Draw a freehand or circle mask around just the eye and adjust it as necessary.

The easiest way to do a 'glowy eye' effect would be to use a grade object over the top, with a mask to limit the glow to the eye. Then add filters to the grade object to create the glow.

On another note, please stop posting multiple topics about the same subject. A single topic will suffice.
