Animate - Glow effect (Directional) blur type

When I choose directional blur type, I see the glow going west of character (by setting directional angle to 0) only when i have “unchecked” ‘Use Source Color’. When I check the box, I see no glow at all. Is the ‘Use Source Color’ checkbox for radial blur type only?


Thank you for your reply. The reason I asked is because the user guide does not explicitly state that ‘Use Source Colour’ works with Radial only. Thanks for clarifying.

Indeed, Use Source Colour works with Radial only.

I suggest that you add a separate Blur-Directional effect and you can use this to get the blur, and combine it with the Glow.
