Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Path masks, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- If you're a fan of the pen tool inside of applications…like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator,…you'll find the digital equivalent inside of Tiffen as well.…It's called a path.…When you apply the Tiffen Dfx package,…one of the masking options is the ability to use paths.…Let's convert this to a Smart Object…and apply the Dfx filter.…The previous mask is automatically loaded,…and you'll notice that the previous effect was also applied.…This is often a shortcut to reuse the last result.…
But if you don't want that,…it's quite simple to just clear that out and remove,…and it'll start clean.…In this case, let's do a bit of color correction.…I'd really like to make the boat higher contrast.…Not quite that strong, but that's looking much better to me,…but I'd like to limit that to just the boat.…By clicking to add a mask, one of the choices is path,…and now it's quite simple.…Just click on your object to define the path,…and you could simply make control points.…
And you'll notice if you pull those into place,…it works pretty well.…
