- So far, I've shown you several…different masking techniques,…and you might have seen more than one that you liked,…or ones that you liked for different situations.…Well, here's the good news,…you could use more than one if you see fit.…For example, let's open this image up into Dfx.…I'll send this across,…and reset the image.…What I'd like to do…is really make a glow on this particular sign.…
Using the Light category here,…I'm gonna apply an Edge Glow,…and boost that quite strongly.…But I don't want that to apply everywhere.…So, adding a mask to that layer is simple.…Let's do an easy mask,…and draw to define the sign.…
Just tracing over the major elements…of this neon sign.…And setting the background…with some large slash-type marks.…Now, I don't want the glow to apply to this building here,…so I'll mark that out.…Let's generate the mask.…That looks good!…I really like how quickly it drew in…and selected things.…
Let's just pick up a few stray marks here…from that power line that looks to be detected.…Refresh that.…That looks pretty solid.…
