Do bear in mind that filters used in TK effect the shadows whereas filters
used  on camera effect the highlights so diffs used in TK look totally
different to their use in camera.

You may be better off using something to spread the highlights in post, an
alpha glow effect.

Kaleidoscope has always been popular for this at the TK stage.
