Give ordinary highlights a dazzling, sparkling effect!

Sparkle. Dazzle. Glow! Trapcode Starglow is a fast-rendering glow effect that creates colorful star-shaped glints like those created by a camera star filter. But Starglow is more customizable, since your glow can streak in up to eight directions and use a different color map for each direction. With beautiful presets and tons of streak options, Starglow has endless possibilities for enhancing text titles, particle systems, water highlights and starry skies.
