Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding effects, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- Toon Boom Animate has a selection of effects…that you can apply to your levels.…Obviously, I can't go through all of these effects…there's far too many,…even in the limited selection in Animate.…In the higher versions of the program,…there are a huge number of these things,…and there's an entire extra section of the program…that deal with them,…but there are some nice ones here that you should know about…so I'll just do a couple of these…to show you how they operate.…Let's see, the effects that I think…might be most useful here…might be Glow.…We'll get a nice Glow effect on Saturn,…and I think a Blur effect on that volcano in the foreground.…
So let's do the volcano first.…I want to make this one be a little blurry.…So, as we get closer, it'll get more out of focus.…So, let's add a layer for Effects, Blur,…and we'll drag the volcano onto that,…and now if we go into the Blur Settings,…click on this,…and we'll set the Radius to, say, 25.…Quality, High.…Close.…Now, you don't see anything,…and the reason for that is because we're not in Render Mode,…
