Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Multiple Text Layers Simultaneously?

Jan 8, 2008

I have 4 different text layers showing up, and they're all visible. (a real small "the," a much larger "Wedding," a small "of," and a large "Jane Smith.") I like to have the different words on separate text layers so I can move them around and lay them out the way I like.

I got to the point where I wanted to apply blending effects to the text (drop shadow, bevel, whatever). Now, since I have 4 different text layers, what I'd normally do is merge them into one rasterized layer and then do my effects. But I'm wondering if there is a better, more non-destructive way.

Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Multiple Layers Simultaneously

Jan 8, 2008

I'm working on an image, and I need it to say "The Wedding of Jane Smith."

I have 4 different text layers showing up, and they're all visible. (a real small "the," a much larger "Wedding," a small "of," and a large "Jane Smith.") I like to have the different words on separate text layers so I can move them around and lay them out the way I like.

I got to the point where I wanted to apply blending effects to the text (drop shadow, bevel, whatever). Now, since I have 4 different text layers, what I'd normally do is merge them into one rasterized layer and then do my effects. But I'm wondering if there is a better, more non-destructive way.

I do video graphic design at my job, working with a video editor, and it would be extremely convenient if I could apply effects to multiple text layers without first rasterizing and merging the layers. i.e. when my boss or the client is looking over my shoulder, and I can show him what the text looks like with the blending FX without having to commit to the text placement/size by rasterizing/merging.

Photoshop :: Rotate Multiple 3D Layers Simultaneously

Aug 14, 2012

My first time using this forum, as I new to Photoshop CS6.
How do I link(or whatever) 3D layers in order for them to move together (such as, rotating)? I have a logo that has two layers, and I want the 2nd layer to be raised up off the other layer.

I have tried to link them, but when I do that, there's a circle with a line through it, signifying this I can't rotate the; environment, scene, current view, or the shape.

How do I over come this?

Photoshop :: Applying Filters In After Effects Layers?

Jul 14, 2012

Is it possible applying those photoshop filters into After effects layers? I thought the filter worked like layers, so when I import the photoshop files to AE I could drag the filter and apply it on a movie layer! I didn't work! Is it possible?

PS: I'm using Production premium CS5.5!

Photoshop :: Applying Adjustments To Multiple Layers

Aug 14, 2008

I'm trying to Key some footage in AE but one of my clips has jacked up exposure making it very difficult. I found the easiest way for me to fix the problem without having to re-shoot is to import the footage into PS converting frames to layers and adjust it accordingly then export back to QT mov. On a test layer I found that the shadow/highlight adjustment works the best. The problem is there doesn't seem to be a new adjustment layer that does shadow/highlight. I don't want to adjust every layer individually because there are over a thousand frames and it could take a long long time. My question is, Is there a way to apply the shadow/highlight to each layer at once?

Photoshop Elements :: Adding Text And Applying Various Effects With The Text

Dec 17, 2013

I think I may have made a big error.  While adding text and applying (experimenting) various "Effects" with the text, I used the garbage can icon to remove the "Effect", thinking it is going to remove the 'Effect" from the text, until I realized I had to remove the "Effect" with the edit button, not the garbage can.  Have I now permanently removed the various "Effects" permanently or just off the screen?  How do I regain them back onto the menu column?  How many "Effects" should be visible in order to have the complete set?  This was my first experiment with the lettering effects and hope I haven't lost them forever.

Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Text

Dec 28, 2004

Photoshop CS. I am using it to print out my wedding invitations and am having a problem.

I printed out a majority of them a few months back and used the font 'poor richard' with the effect 'glowing edges' and it worked perfectly for the look I was going for. Now, when I try the same, the color of the text changes to black as soon as I apply the effect.

Photoshop :: Clipping Mask Multiple Text Layers Without Merging Text Layers

Dec 29, 2008

I am trying to get a white layer with see through writing which reveals the background image underneath. (Almost like I have put a stencil over a photograph). I have discovered this is called a clipping mask.

However, I am having difficulty using a clipping mask over multiple text layers. It seems to only do it to one layer directly beneath. I do not want to merge the text layers as I want to mess about with the design a fair bit.

Photoshop :: Edit Copied Layers Simultaneously?

Apr 10, 2008

I'm working on a PNG that's supposed to be tiled for use as a web background. It's an image of clouds, and since it's an organic form, I want to avoid it looking tiled, I'm editing the edges to make them blend together.

I've got 9 identical layers over a white background, and what I'm LIKE to do is have any change I make in one layer be reflected in all 9. Can that be done? It would come in pretty handy about now...

After Effects :: How To Animate The Color Of Multiple Layers At Once

Sep 7, 2013

I've created a grid of around 80 individual text layers (each layer is a single letter) and first, I want to animate their opacity as a group, then INDIVIDUALLY animate their opacity (again) and color.  How do I do this?
Also, while I'm asking, I have two simpler questions:
- is there a way to animate the color of multiple layers at once so I don't have to click on each individual layer and do it manually?
- how do I achieve a "swipe" opacity effect?  If this is not clear I can explain but I won't bother for now.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Run Multiple Rules Simultaneously

May 3, 2012

I have an assembly with multible parts which all have iLogic rules in them. I want to controle when the rules are executed in each part, thus I have set them as "Don't run automatically". These rules are iTriggered by the top assembly, if they are active.

Is there a possibility of how I can run multiple rules simultaneously?

The code below is an example of the controle rule that determines the rules to be run but it takes one rule at the time...

 IfComponent.IsActive("5580 Heating element package 1")=TrueThen
iLogicVb.RunRule("5580 Heating element basket 1", "iTriggerRule")
IfComponent.IsActive("5580 Heating element package 2")=TrueThen
iLogicVb.RunRule("5580 Heating element basket 2", "iTriggerRule")
up to x

I have also tried with For - Next statements...But the rules are run in the order that tey are written...

As the computer has a lot of memory in reserve; I want somehow all the iTriggerRules to be run at the same time as this would save a lot of time.

After Effects :: Why Does Pasting Multiple Layers Into A Different Comp Ruin The Order

Feb 25, 2013

I have 6 layers in a comp, and I'm taking them across, via copy/paste, to another comp.  Each second layer is an Alpha channel for the one below it.  However when they're pasted into the next comp they ALWAYS are reversed, or randomly resorted, ruining everything about their blends and alpha relationships with one another.
Why does After Effects do this? Is there a way to prevent it from happening?
This doesn't just happen in this instance, I've noticed it nearly always happening when pasting multiple layers.

Paint Shop Pro :: Viewing Multiple Images Simultaneously?

Aug 5, 2011

I'm a new user of PSP X3, having upgraded from X2 and previously from X. When I used earlier versions, I could have numerous images open in the workspace, re-sizing, comparing, cross-cloning, etc. Now with X3 I can't seem to find any setting that will allow that same multiple image viewing. I've looked at the documentation but can't find any mention of this issue.

Am I just missing some checkbox or did Corel abandon this capability?

Lightroom :: How To Import Multiple Catalogs Simultaneously Into One Catalog

Nov 28, 2013

I would like to import multiple catalogs simultaneously into one catalog.
The thing is that I lost my main catalog in a hard-drive failure and my last backup is too old. Fortunately I always "export a folder as catalog" into the original pictures folder, so I always keep starring, color editing, etc.
What I would like to do now is to import each of these litle catalogs into one new main one, without having to import each at a time, but all simultaneously, which would save me an enormous amount of time.
Is there a way to do this?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Change Appearance Of Multiple Parts Simultaneously

Aug 1, 2013

I have an assembly with multiple parts.

I wish to change the colour (how they're displayed) of a few of them.

When i right click on the part, i can select iProperties>Occurrence>Appearance

When i control + select multiple items, then right click, the Appearance tab is greyed out.

Not a huge problem at the moment, but in future, I may wish to make 30 + different parts a different colour and would like to do it in one step.

Photoshop :: CC Messes Up Text Colors / Layer Effects And Whole Layers

Jul 9, 2013

I was just working on several documents when something strange happened - out of nothing the appearance of fonts,layers, backgrounds etc changed. white color turned black. some layers had total different colors ( bitmap layers, no shape layers) - everything looked really messed up. I thought its some display bug in Photoshop cc so I saved my document and restart everything - fun thing -> it did save with these alterations.
Whatever happened, I have the problem in 2 documents, i can't reproduce it - one was a pretty big psd file - the other one was a fairly new one. Because of Time machine i was able to recover my file.

Photoshop :: Adding Effects To Text Layers Now Causing Image To Disappear?

Dec 18, 2012

Ever since the latest update to PS CS6, when I add a simple effect to a text layer, like emboss, the working image disappears when I zoom in and out. Also, the layer effect does nothing to the type. It's almost like a dispay issue. When I turn the layer effect off, my image is visible again.

After Effects :: Created Text Layers In AI

Feb 3, 2014

I am creating a typographic advertisement and I created the text layers in AI. I imported these files as raster layers and they appear clear within the pre-compositions of AE. The problem that I run into is when I exit the pre-comp and view the final composition the nested layers become pixelated. The layers are vector layers and I have tried everything that I can to correct the problem.

After Effects :: Why Don't Premiere CC Text Layers Translate

Apr 17, 2014

when I transform my edit into an after effects composition from the premier timeline the text layers all come over as black solids and the text content is lost.
I don't give two hoots as to your no doubt legitimate technical reasons for this, but the bottom line is that it sucks, it's a waste of my time and effort and it just seems like a simple thing that you should have implemented from the ground up when building the dynamic linking between AE and PR.
Is there an expected timeframe for the issue to be addressed?
Just to explain my typical workflow a little, I'm an editor/motion artist, so it's very frequent I'll lay out all my picture assets and text objects on a video edit timeline alongside vo and music, and once I'm happy with the flow I move the timeline over to Ae to commence animation for tv commercials, political spots, advocacy work, whatever.

Photoshop :: Selecting Multiple Text Layers - Larger Font Size

Jun 21, 2012

I have found this post from April where the bug was acknowledged in the beta:

I now have the official release of CS6, and I am still seeing this issue. And for clarification, here's what the issue is:
- I start off creating a text layer with a font size of 20px.
- I then transform this layer to make it larger.
- I copy the layer over so I have identical text layers.
- When I select each individually, I am shown the new, larger font size, we'll just say 40px. But when I select both together, it shows the original font size of 20px in the character palette. When I increase the font size with both selected to say 30px, it actually makes the text more like 60px.
Will this bug actually get fixed?
