Quick Overview

Real Glow is a glow aura generator which works on rules of optically correct light falloff as opposed to an unrealistic simple linear blur as AE's internal glow and other glow plug-ins use. Render Only licenses are available for purchase separately here.

I really like how it uses the inverse square law for its falloff. Before I found the plugin, I was looking for a way to make photorealistic lightsaber glows. - Simon Gravel
Thanks ... this is much better than the native ae glow. Nice job! - Orrin Zucker
You had me at inverse square fall-off... - Bryan Woods
Real Glow sports a more physically accurate glow and more artistic control for compositing. - Kiel Pease

Real Glow is a realistic glow generator for Adobe After Effects developed on industry proven methods and algorithms. It operates based on real world optical properties instead of a simple linear blur used in After Effect's internal glow or other third party glow plug-ins. Ideal for glowing realistic light phenomena, sci-fi energy effects, or motion graphics.
