    Glow Using Separate Alpha Pass for Downlights

    3DSDan

      I'm relatively new to After Effects and I'm trying to use the glow effect to create a glow around the downlights in a flythrough animation that I've created using 3DS Max. The effect that I'm trying to achieve is this:Untitled-3.jpg

      Using the following two images:

      So have the alpha pass frames as a TIF sequence above the room TIF sequence and I've applied the glow effect to the alpha pass frames but I can only seem to get the black to lighten up or crate a glow around the 4 edges of the image by changing glow parameters. How can I achieve the soft glow effect in the first image using the bottom two images?
