MODES & EFFECTS Blending Modes: a. k. a modes, layer modes, transfer modes Different

MODES & EFFECTS Blending Modes: a. k. a modes, layer modes, transfer modes Different methods for combining images together Take some properties of one image and combine it with some properties of another image that is often more intriguing than merely stacking Many artists use modes through the “happy accident” method which is a valid way because it can be hard to predict the outcome

MODES & EFFECTS Blending Modes Each blending mode alter the pixel color values of

MODES & EFFECTS Blending Modes Each blending mode alter the pixel color values of the layer they are applied to and these alterations are based on the image ( stack of layers) underneath. Each mode has a different set of rules (algorithms or math equations) for how it will alter the color values- R G B of the pixels in the layer it is working on. Differences in COLOR S alter the final effect. Blending modes do not replace or obliterate the normal Masks, Effects and Transformations calculated for each layer

MODES & EFFECTS Applying Modes You find the Modes list in the layer columns

MODES & EFFECTS Applying Modes You find the Modes list in the layer columns in the time line. It may be hidden at first and you will need to add it by selecting the check box names “Modes” Each layer has a default Mode named “normal” applied to it. The Modes have a drop down menu from which you can select a mode. Toggle through the modes list by holding “Shift” and pressing “+” key

MODES & EFFECTS Effects and presets Each layer can have multiple effects added to them. Effects can be stacked and the stack order does matter Example: add 4 color ramp then twist vs. Twist then add 4 color ramp Browse presets using: Animation > browse presets Most effects are combinations of many other effects. Common effects: blurs, Distortions, drop shadows, bevels Example: Text animation effects and presets
