Starglow is a fast-rendering glow effect. It creates a star-shaped glow around the highlights of the source. The star shape consists of eight directions, and each direction can be assigned an individual colormap and streak length.

The effect looks similair to shooting with a star filter on the camera.

It can be used to add realism to CG clips or to create a magical, dreamy or romantic feeling in a clip shot with camera. It can also be set up for effects that are completely new or to simulate lens artifacts. And it works nice with particle effects and text.

But, it does not work with every kind of footage. Normally Starglow works best if the highlights are well defined (light areas on a dark background). Try the free demo and see if it works in your project!
