Select an effect category or search a look you want to create:

WarpRepeat


Transforms the source input multiple times and averages the results to create a variety of looks, including blurred looks.

DuoTone


Recolors the source clip according to two specified colors using the brightness of the source clip. Similar to QuadTone and TriTone.

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.

DefocusPrism


Defocuses the color channels of the source clip to produce a blurred effect.

PsykoBlobs


Combines the source clip with a field of blob shapes and then passes them through a colorization process. The Phase Speed parameter causes the colors to automatically rotate over time.

DissolveBlur


Transitions between two clips while blurring each. The first clip is blurred and faded out while the second clip is unblurred and faded in.

TileScramble


Breaks the image into various styles of rectangular tiles to create an effect like a wall of randomly oriented mirrors

JPEGDamage


Creates a version of the source input that is subjected to JPEG compression artifacts and errors. This can be used to give various looks of low-quality digital transmissions.

WipeFourWedges


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

In-Depth

ZapFrom


Generates lightning bolts and electrical arcs from a given point to the edges of objects. Similar to Zap.

ShowBadColors


Identifies all pixels that fall outside a given color range, and flags them with the same color so they can be seen easily.

WipeChecker


Performs a wipe transition between two clips using a grid of growing or shrinking checkers.

Tint


Tints the dark and light regions of the input clip towards given colors. The dark colors are tinted by the Tint Dark color, and the brighter colors are tinted by the Tint Lights color.

DissolveEdgeRays


Transitions between two clips using animated edge rays. The clips dissolve into each other, and edge rays are added to the result.

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.

DissolvePuddle


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