Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with layers and blending modes, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- One of my favorite techniques…inside of motion graphic and photography tools…is the ability to work with blending modes.…Blending modes essentially mix the contents of one layer…with another and because Tiffen fully supports…blending modes, you can actually get some pretty cool…results within complex filter stacks.…In this previous example, I added a black and white effect.…However, I don't need to leave that…as a black and white filter, purely.…Rather, I can change it's blending mode.…You'll see here support with a pop up list…of blending modes that closely match those in Photoshop.…
For example, I could multiply…that black and white adjustment…so it, instead of turning this black and white,…simply darkens down the backdrop.…And while I'm here, if it's too strong,…it's quite simple to refine that…with an opacity slider…or just use the steppers here to dial it in,…or, of course, type in a new value.…In this case, that was really simple.…Let's put this at a higher value.…
There we go.…And you'll see by toggling that on and off…
