Green  Increases the red value of the image.
Blue  Increases the blue value of the image.

BoxBlur

This effect applies a boxblur on the selected image, whereby a pixel’s color is blurred by averaging the current pixel’s color with that of its neighboring pixels. The size of the neighborhood (the kernel) is defined by the strength parameter. The height and width parameter should be equal to the resolution of the image. If they are not the image will be blurrier.

Parameters

Mix[%] Defines the visibility of the effect.
Strength Defines the kernel size.
Width[px] Defines the image width for the internal calculation.
Height[px] Defines the image height for the internal calculation.

           


       

BoxBlurSep

This effect applies a directional boxblur on the selected image, whereby a pixel’s color is blurred by averaging the current pixel’s color with that of its neighboring pixels. Unlike the BoxBlur effect the image is blurred in the direction defined by the horizontal parameter. To get a complete boxblur the BoxBlurSep effect needs to be applied two times, once with ‘Horizontal = 0.0’, once with ‘Horizontal = 1.0’. This combination will lead to an even stronger blurring-effect compared to the plain BoxBlur.

Parameters

Mix[%] Defines the visibility of the effect.
Strength Defines the kernel size
Horizontal Defines the direction of the blur.
Width[px] Defines the image width for the internal calculation.
Height[px] Defines the image height for the internal calculation.

TriNoise

A layer of black triangular shapes is put on top of the image. If the ‘time’ parameter is used the triangles will move over the screen and are faded in and out following a fixed pattern creating noise.

Parameters

time The time interval during which the triangles are faded in and out is defined by placing two keypoints on the time-timeline. The speed of the animation depends on the distance between the keypoints and the difference between their values.
amount Defines the number of triangles that are laid over the image and thereby also their size.
Mix[%] The lower the value, the less transparent are the triangles. Increases the visibility of the triangles from the screen borders to the center.

           

           

Vignette

Classic vignette effect. Darkens the image from the screen borders to the center.

Parameters

Mix[%] Defines the visibility of the effect.
Width[%] Defines how far from the screen borders the darkened area reaches.

           


Zoom

Can be used to zoom in and out of content. Zooming out works similar to ‘Tiling’, with the difference that ‘Tiling’ uses the bottom left corner as the effects center point, whereby here the center can be chosen freely.

Parameters

Mix[%]
Defines the visibility of the effect.
xPosition
Defines the x-coordinate of the effects center point.
yPosition
Defines the y-coordinate of the effects center point.
Scale[%]
Defines the zooming factor. Values >1.00 will zoom in, values <1.00 will zoom out.
