Step one from the main hd1280 output composition, by importing you image or video and replacing the stars_enc_hd background layer, you can easily apply this effect to any of your footage or menu backgrounds, timeline comments shown advise on how best to do this.

Step two By opening the shimmer composition the light effect itself can easily be edited follow the time line comments to move the light source and position and by using the effect controls for shine you can increase the light strength, radiance etc. and for a more subtle effect reduce the angle of the phase keyframes.
