Distort Effects

Effects in the Distort category are designed to shift pixels to deform images. This category includes dynamic versions of several Photoshop effects (indicated by the name PS). Although more complex morphing effects are reserved for the Production Bundle, the Standard package does include the Smear effect. As usual, don't let the category name limit the way you use these effects; often, a distortion may appear quite natural.

After Effects 5 moves the Transform effect into this category. The Transform effect allows you to apply transformations (position, rotation, anchor point) to a layer at the Effect stage of rendering. See Chapter 15 for more about circumventing the rendering order to achieve certain results.
