New pseudo effect 2D Rim Light instantly adds backlighting to layers in Ae.
Reuben Lara’s new pseudo effect for Adobe Ae lets you instantly create a backlight rim light effect for any After Effects layer. 2D Rim Light is an easy way to add an extra dimension to character animations and more.
2D rim Light offers simple controls for the angle, color, size, softness of the lighting effect, and more. While it’s easy to create your own light wrap or rim light effect, there is nothing like having a handy preset for a faster workflow.
