- Final Cut 10 has some gorgeous looks,…including a day for night.…The only only struggle I have…is I find some of them a little too intense,…and just being able to remove their intensity isn't enough.…We're gonna use a blending mode to push them even further.…I'm gonna take the day for night effect.…It's in my effect category, under looks.…And you can see it's there,…and it's just really super strong.…It's too strong for what I want.…I'm gonna go ahead duplicate this upwards again.…With it duplicated upwards,…I'm just gonna go ahead…and drag the day for night on the top shot.…
We're not seeing anything with the bottom shot yet.…You can see the day for night.…I can adjust the amount.…But I can't really get them to interact,…and that's where I'm gonna really love my blending modes.…So I'm coming to this blending mode.…I definitely want to make the bottom shot darker…with this blending mode.…So I'm gonna pick one of the darker category items.…I'll start with multiply.…That's given me a really nice dark contrasty look.…
