A pack of five, free presets to be used with Shadow Studio 2 in After Effects to create gorgeous and easy inner shadows. We've refined the settings and sweet talked the plugin to grant you fantastic looking results nearly instantly.
The pack includes:
*NEW* Rim Lighting SS2 - Attempting to replicate the style of three point lighting styles, three instances of Shadow Studio 2 are applied. One as a general key light, a second as a large soft shadow and a third as a bright and short rim light.
*NEW* Glowing Edge SS2 - Create a soft glowing edge highlight for your layers, utilising Plugin Everything's brilliant Deep Glow plugin. Apply this to a duplicated layer and then change the blending mode to Add.
Colourised Highlight SS2 - Combining the forces of Shadow Studio 2 and the Colorama effect, this preset allows you to create luscious inner highlights that washes a warm sunset palette over your layer. Apply this to a duplicated layer and then change the blending mode to Screen. Fixed preset in Version 1.1.1.
Inner Lighting SS2 - Applies two instances of Shadow Studio 2, one for an inner shadow, and another for an inner highlight. We've fine tuned the settings and also linked the angle controls so when you change the angle of the highlight, the shadow follows but flipped to the other side.
Full Lighting SS2 - The same as Inner Lighting above, but also now includes a Shadow Studio 2 drop shadow which is also linked to the highlight angle for maximum efficiency.
