Optical Glow in Supercomp, wraps around other layers automatically, which is a great way to make scenes look more realistic.

Because of the Supercomp render engine, Optical Glow also interacts with the effects on foreground layers, such as light wrap, allowing you to make quick adjustments all through the compositing process.

TIP: Reduce Highlight Rolloff to reduce highlight clipping if you’re using the Glow control at high settings

TIP: Use vibrance control for quickly changing the colour saturation
