Chapter 10. Effects Fundamentals > Standard Effect Categories

Standard Effect Categories

The effects in the Effects menu are organized into several categories, depending on their functions. When you add third-party plug-ins, you can usually choose whether the added effects appear under an existing category, or create their own.

  • Adjust alters the colors or brightness of a layer.

  • Audio processes audio.

  • Blur and Sharpen make a layer's image appear out of focus or more in focus.

  • Channel manipulates the individual channels of a layer—red, green, blue, or alpha—and the color information derived from them.

  • Cineon contains the Cineon converter necessary to use film images transferred to the Cineon file format.

  • Distort deforms or distorts a layer's image.

  • Image Control alters the color values of a layer image.

  • Keying makes areas of an image transparent, based on color or brightness.

  • Perspective simulates positioning a layer in three-dimensional space.

  • Render creates graphical elements.

  • Stylize alters the pixels of the image in a number of ways to produce abstracted, stylized effects.

  • Text creates text elements.

  • Time alters the layer image based on its timing.

  • Transition pertains to effects designed to transition between layers, or how images gradually replace others.

  • Video prepares images for video output.
