Light Flares

I am making a Harry Potter based video. In one of the parts I am using a spell against someone else and I added a light flare in the middle of the collision. The spell effect that I added on to the layer isn't very wide, the light flare that I added onto the spell effect is cut off by that box. Is there a way to make the edges of the box not so visible?


  • If you make a mask around the edges in the inside of the effect then feather it, that should do the job!

    Put the light flare on a new Plane layer instead of on the spell effect layer, and make the Plane as large as it needs to be.  (Set the color of the Plane to black, and the blend mode to Add.)

  • @SteveKarstensen Funny thing is, I actually thought of that while writing this question. I just wanted to see if there was any way to actually reduce the edges of the box.

    Well, you could mask it like HIS said, but it would probably look better on a larger plane.
