If you want to make your pictures are not only clear and bright, but that they also look as if they were taken by a professionist, you can rely on specialized graphic effects. Such an example is Trapcode Shine and you can enjoy its functions once you integrate it within Adobe Premiere Pro or Adobe After Effects.
If you are already familiarized with any of the host applications, you can make the most of the plugin, as opposed to a novice who would first need to take the time getting used to the Adobe software.
Trapcode Shine can enhance your pictures with light rays which, in turn, can help create a realistic effect or a very dramatic and intense one. For instance, you can rely on the plugin to depict sunshine through clouds or a lighthouse on a foggy cliff, while you can also use light rays to emphasize a logo or a title.
Another advantage of Trapcode Shine is that you can either experiment with the included presets or design a customized 3D light effect from scratch, all without needing to leave the 2D editing timeline. The rendering time is considerably reduced compared to the one of dedicated 3D software.
When it comes to creating your own light ray, you can adjust various parameters, to ensure the output matches your expectations - more precisely, you can modify the ray length and the source point, as well as the colorization, shimmer appearance, opacity or various compositing modes.
If you want to use Trapcode Shine to emphasize a movie or a project title, you can either go with one of the provided dedicated effects or create a beveled effect using the Alpha Edges feature.
All in all, if used correctly, Trapcode Shine can help design visually appealing photos or impressive titles for a wide range of purposes. You can also evaluate the functions of the plugin before deciding if you want to purchase a license.
