HalfToneColor


Creates a posterized look made up of a colored dot pattern. Use the Smooth Source parameter to remove some details and make the dots more consistently round.

Threshold


Sets the color channels of the source clip to full on or full off. Can be used to increase the contrast of each color channel independently for color grading or color correcting.

Shape


Generates a wide variety of shapes onto an image, from polygons and circles to stars, flower shapes, and swirled starfish shapes. The shapes can be used as masks.

DissolveBubble


Transitions between two clips using a bubble warping function. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in.

DissolveWaves


Transitions between two clips using a waves warping function. The first clip is warped away and faded out while the second clip is unwarped into place and faded in.

Streaks


Motion blurs the bright area of the source into streaks between the From and To transformations. This is used to create an extended film exposure effect or simulate soft beams of light.

In-Depth

DogVision


Generates a dual color channel version of an image, as might be perceived by the limited color vision of dogs. Effective in emphasizing complimentary colors.

Grain


Adds color and/or monochrome grain to the source clip. Adjust the grain texture with the amplitude and frequency parameters.

Quadtone


Recolors the source clip according to four specified colors using the brightness of the source clip. Similar to DuoTone and TriTone.

DissolveTiles


Transitions between two clips while breaking each up into tiles and scrambling them. The first clip breaks apart and spreads out while the second clip coalesces behind the first.

DissolveRays


Transitions between two clips using animated rays. The rays ramp up and down over the duration of the effect. The rays animate by moving the origin across the screen along a line.

WipeFourWedges


Performs a wipe transition between two clips using a pattern of four wedges merging into an 'X' shape.

EdgeColorize


Assigns different colors to the edges of the source clip depending on their direction. Increase the Edge Smooth parameter for thicker edges.

EdgesInDirection


Finds the edges of the source input that are aligned in a specified direction. Increase the Edge Smooth parameter for thicker edges.

In-Depth

ClampChroma


Controls the maximum levels of chrominance and luminance of the clip, adjusting levels to 'broadcast safe' values.

In-Depth

Halftone


Creates a halftone effect using a pattern of black and white dots. Change the color and size of dots to create artistic looks like printing errors, newsprint, and comic print.
