Hi,I got a 3d shot of a flock of birds flying towards the sun.My boss wants to have a a kind of a glow effect,which is easy but....the direction of the glow must be inwards instead of outwards. Is like the sun invading the edges of the birds,illuminating them and vanishing in their bodies.
Any ideas?

Hi..

There are two ways you can attack this...

1) Use a variety of masks, keys and blurs to create the effect of sun rays. Sounds tough? Well, lucky you: There's a FREE TUTORIAL over at creativecow.net !

2) You can buy the affordable plug-in from Trapcode called "Shine"... Shine is a fast light effect plug-in and the effect looks very much like volumetric light, but is actually a 2D effect. You can download a trial version and try it out before you buy...
