Adds a bloom effect and rays of light that are reflected at an angle to the brightest portions of an image. You can adjust the Glint filter to create effects ranging from subtle glows to intense, multi-spiked flares of color. The Glint filter is especially useful with 3D text—it integrates beautifully with lights and changes based on the surface properties of the 3D text. Combine the Glint filter with lights for realistic-looking lighting and camera movements.

Adjust this filter using the parameter controls in the Filters Inspector:

  • Exposure: Lightens or darkens the glint highlights.

  • Tint: Sets the strength of the color specified in the Tint Color parameter.

  • Tint Color: Sets the color of the glint.

  • Glint Size: Sets the size of the glint’s spikes.

  • Streaks: Sets the number of spikes emanating from the glint.

  • Glint Softness: Sets the amount of softness applied to the glint.

  • Glow Amount: Sets the brightness multiplier of the glint.

  • Glint Angle: Sets the angle of the glint streaks.

  • Intensity: Controls the intensity of the glow effect; a high value brightens the light portions of an image.

  • Color Fringing: Creates an effect similar to when a camera lens fails to focus colors to the same point. This is also known as chromatic aberration.

  • Crop: Sets whether the filtered image is sharply cropped at its original boundaries. When this checkbox is deselected, the filter affects the edges of the image.

  • Mix: Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the filtered image.
