Chapter 15. Special Effects > The Lens Docker

The Lens Docker

The Lens docker lets you simulate camera lens effects, such as fish-eye, magnify, brightening, and transparency. You can select any closed-path object (such as a square, star, or artistic text object) to be used as the lens. When the lens object is moved over any other image, you see its effect.

To add a lens effect to a graphic:

1.
To open the Lens docker (Figure 15.44), choose Window > Dockers > Lens, choose Effects > Lens, or press .

Figure 15.44. The Lens docker.


2.
Using the Pick Tool, select the object that is going to become the lens (Figure 15.45) and drag it onto the graphic that will be viewed through it.

Figure 15.45. Select a closed-path object that will act as the lens.


3.
Select a lens effect from the drop-down list on the Lens docker.

4.
Click Apply.

The lens graphic redraws, showing the visual effect on the graphic beneath it (Figure 15.46).

Figure 15.46. This is an example of the Magnify lens effect.
