Casting a glow...

So, I have a pretty groovy looking portal thing going on but I know I need a glow to be cast on the surface around it.  How?

    You'll have to basically roto a rough shape on a grade layer then use color correction effects to brighten things up.

    This video is specifically about fire, but the basic techniques apply to any glowing object or energy field.

  •  Thanks for that, Triem23!  That worked really well and was a great help!  I need to tweak it a bit but it worked for what I needed.  The glow on the ground is starting to look awesome but I need to add a glow to the person walking away from the portal now.  Now, if I can figure out how to remove the car that shows up in one shot and the immediate next shot (from a completely different angle shot on a separate day, mind you) is gone.  ;P
