Chapter 12. Creating Titles > Setting Sheen Options

Setting Sheen Options

Both fill and stroke options include a parameter called “Sheen.” Sheen makes an object seem smooth and shiny by simulating light reflecting from the object’s surface.

To apply a sheen:

1.
Select an object in the drawing area.

2.
Apply a fill to the object, if it doesn’t already have one.

Make sure to expand the Fill property heading in the Object Style area of the Title Designer window.

3.
Under the Fill property heading, check the Sheen subheading.

A sheen appears on the object, using the default settings.

4.
Click the triangle next to Sheen to reveal its properties.

5.
Under Sheen, set the following options (Figure 12.99):

Figure 12.99. Check the Sheen option, and set its color, opacity, size, angle, and offset.


Color— sets the color of the sheen; white is the default

Opacity— sets the opacity of the sheen

Size— sets the width of the sheen

Angle— sets the angle of the sheen, in degrees

Offset— shifts the position of the sheen

The object’s sheen uses the settings you specified (Figure 12.100).

Figure 12.100. In this example, the object’s sheen implies a polished surface.
