Need a Glow Filter

I am running Vegas 6, and I need a good glow or softening filter. I know there is one for FCP, that allows you to choose a color, using the eyedropper and then blow out the color. It also has the effect of softening up faces sorta like a pro mist filter would do. Any one know of a plugin for this that you can personally speak to.

Vegas has a Glow FX built-in. You might also look at the tools available at newbluefx.com

The light rays plugin can act like a diffusion filter, if you apply it very lightly. I can't remember the details at the moment, but the strength needs to be way down, while the other setting. . .oh hell, I don't remember.

It'll distort the image just slightly, but it works pretty well.

Unsharp mask is another way to do a soft focus glow effect.

In Vegas, unsharp mask will actually make things unsharp since you can put in negative values. You can't do this in Photoshop.
