After Effects :: How To Apply Effect To Just Subject In CS6

Jun 20, 2013

I would like to add an effect to just a person in front of a green screen.  I've created an adjustment layer that produces the effect and placed it above the footage layer. How can I have the effect just apply to the actor and not carry over and fill the rest of the screen?

After Effects :: How To Keep A Subject From Being Affected By A Mask

Mar 9, 2014

i have a shot in an office where i have a subject walking in front of some really bright windows.  i added an adjustment layer and made 6 mask squares over the windows and brought down the brightness a bit.  of course when the subject walks in front of those windows you can see the shaded mask on him.
im not sure what you call it but what do i do to him to keep the mask from showing on him? 
not sure if i should make another thread but ill ask this as well in the same shot because of the bright windows originally the rest of the scene inside the office is dark.  how do i brighten the rest of the scene without affecting the windows?  i tried duplicating the adjustment layer with the 6 masks and inverting them so i can brighten everything but windows but no matter what i did i couldnt get it to work.

Photoshop :: How To Apply Colorfull Effects

Sep 1, 2005

I would like to apply colorfull effects to an image, but i do not know how. A long time ago I played with photoshop, and i remeber that at the click of a button I was able to transform the image completely with colorfull effects. Im working on my sisters PC while shes a way on vacation , and would like to transform this image.The present image is black and white , but i would like to recall how to do this to any image.

Any help appreciated. Basically I plan to use images as references for painting, but Id like to change the colors on the image completely using presets. Im not sure if they are filters or what not.I tried the filters , but thats not what im looking for. I need to completely transform the colors.

Illustrator :: Why Are None Of The Effects Apply Working

Aug 22, 2012

Why are none of the effects I apply working? Every effect I've tried causes the program to "Not Respond", and then shows the program applying the "Gaussian Blur" when I have not applied it. The program applied  "Gaussian Blur" also does not take effect, even though it shows the program applying it.

Photoshop :: Apply Same Effect To All Frames In CS5 Animation?

Feb 24, 2012

I need to add lens flare to all frames at once - but it needs to be applied to the flattened image.  I don't want to have to flatten, click lens flare for each of the 70 frames separately.
Here is the gif and photos illustrating what happens if I select frame one - unflattened and flattened.  The spinning globe of course is the animation that is inserted into the surrounding jpeg:

Xara :: Apply A Motion Blur Effect?

May 13, 2011

I'm trying to blur some text so that it blends in with the background a little. I found the perfect way to do this using the Live Effect, Soften Filter, Motion Blur. However, when I finish getting it to blur to exactly how I need it to look, there is no option to apply this to the text. When I close the box (the only option available) I lose the effect! How do I get it to apply to my text? Do I need to change the text to a shape first?

Illustrator SDK :: How To Apply 3D Revolve Effect Using PlayActionEvent

Nov 16, 2011

I am trying to apply 3D Revolve effect using PlayActionEvent. Since effects are not recordable, I added it using "Insert Menu Item..." and saved .aia file, which contained 3 params (itnm, lcnm and cmid). These params were enough to invoke 3D Revolve Options Dialog using SDK, but nothing more. Two questions:

Is it possible to suppress Options dialog? I used kDialogOff, but without effect. I suppose that dialog showed because I haven't specified any additional parameter (like x, y, z rotation, angle, surface, etc), which leads to second questionHow to find out list of params that are necessary for particular effect? 

Generally, is it possible at all to apply Effects using PlayActionEvent?

Premiere Pro :: Apply A Video Effect To A Track?

Jul 11, 2010

I just came over from Sony Vegas Pro 9 (which kicks ***, but has bad native support for DSLR files).
In Vegas you can apply effects to video in three ways:

1. A whole clip in the project media bin (automatically applying such effects to all timeline events using this clip).

2. Individual timeline events.

3. Entire video tracks (automatically applying such effects to every clip on the track).
Is this possible in Premiere CS5? I find it hard to believe that it's not possible since it is such a useful thing to do. For example, what if you have a bunch of footage that you want to look grainy but you don't want to apply the same effect to every timeline event from the clips because it is time consuming and creates many sources of change if you want to tweak the effect settings?

Paint.NET :: Apply Multiple Effects On Image Or Images

Nov 21, 2012

Is there an easy way to apply multiple effects on a set of images or individual images, similiar to something like a preset in LightRoom.

For example, if I run the following effects I have to apply it to each image one effect at a time and repeat for each image that I want the exact same effects applied but would prefer to do it all in one go

Blur/(GPU) Gaussian Blur

Noise/Reduce Noise


I use these to clean up the moire from scans and reduce dust/dirt then apply a mild sharpen effect to bring back the now softenend image back up slightly. Being able to have presets would be a real bonus for quick clean ups, of digital camera images or camera phone images

I found it by spending a bit more time looking through the menus, under the Effect menu and the Advanced tab and creating a custom effects script ......

But now would like to see if I can have a list of presets instead of having to load them through the script engine one at a time, maybe an option under the 'Effects/Presets' menu option listing all the scripts that are currently saved.

Illustrator :: Any Way To Apply Twist Effect Twice In Opposite Directions

Feb 13, 2014

I am trying to draw a sun-like shape. I started with a star polygon and apply the Twist effect. That gets me pretty good arms on the sun, but I'd like for something a bit more flame-like, so I'd like to get the arms to now bend back in the opposite direction. Is there any way to use or modify the Twist effect so that I can apply it a second time but bend further out in the opposite direction? Or is there some other good way to get the rotation along all the arms.

Illustrator Scripting :: Possible To Apply Transform Effect From JavaScript?

Apr 18, 2013

I was wondering if it's possible to do what Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform does from JS. I had a look at the documentation and found nothing in that direction.
The closest thing I found was PageItem.applyEffect(effectXML) looking at the Object Model Viewer in Extend Script Toolkit, but couldn't find documentation for it and I suspect it might have something to do with SVG filters perhaps ?
In conclusion: Is it possible to apply a Transform effect from JS (and if so, how )?How can applyEffect be used ?

GIMP :: Editing Text Will No Longer Apply Italic Nor Bold Effects

Oct 1, 2013

When I am editing text, GIMP will no longer apply italic nor bold effects. (Underline works though.)

I just upgraded from 2.8(.2?) to 2.8.6, and now I have this problem. I also just upgraded from Win XP to WIn 7 and upgraded from 32-bit to 64-bit, so I don't know if that is a factor.

I have files I created with the last version of GIMP that I can open and see the text properly formatted, but if I adjust the text the formatting disappears and WILL NOT come back.

GIMP won't print anymore either. My printer is set up correctly and I can print from other programs, but when I print from GIMP, it LOOKS like it went through, but the printer fails to do anything. I wind up having to tell GIMP to print to the microsoft xps writer (which DOES work) and then open the xps file I just made and have windows print it.

After Effects :: How To Find Where An Effect Was Used

Jul 29, 2013

I'm running AE CS6 (on MBPro OS X 10.7.5) and I just re-opened a file made with AE CS4 that uses some BCC plug-ins which I haven't re-installed in CS6. I got an alert that some effects were missing from the project.  I'd like to find out where the effects are used in the project so I can delete them and end the alert message's reign of terror.  Is there a shortcut way of doing that or must I hunt through every layer manually?

After Effects :: Camera Linked Space Effect With Particular

Dec 15, 2013

how to create a self generating space (static stars/particles) which is driven by the movement of the 3d camera.
The reason I ask is because I need to create a space flythrough over a long period (3mins) and i don't want to create a huge volumetric space to simply fly through as it seems very inefficient. Plus it has the drawback of the partcile cloud being visible at the boudary of the volume due to the lack of particles the other side of the volumetric boundary.
What the particular effect would need to do is act as a volume attached to the cameras position and rotation which generates particles at the exact opposite velocity of the camera so it gives the illusion that the particles are static and that the camera is flying past them.

After Effects :: Time Warp Effect Causes Color Change (CS4)

Mar 23, 2013

I have a 1-minute clip that I've been working on. The first 30s I want to playback at normal speed. Between 30 and 36s I want the playback speed to gradually increase to about double the normal playback speed. At 36s I want it to stay at double speed for a few seconds and then gradually return to realtime playback. I don't want it to suddenly go from normal speed to double speed. From what I've read this is possible with the TimeWarp effect or enabling time re-mapping. Since I don't know how to do either I decided to look up some tuts on TimeWarp. I didn't find much and when I add the TimeWarp effect to my footage layer, all the color correction I did on it disappears.
I guess I'm wondering two things:

-How do I accomplish the speeding up and slowing down that I described above?
-If I'm supposed to use Timewarp, why does it create issues with my color and how do I fix it?
