… for Apple Motion
Tip #1019: Effects Playground: Circle
The Circle filter converts any image – still or moving – into a series of circles.
This week, I decided to explore some of the filters included with Apple Motion. This article looks at Filters > Stylize > Circle.
This converts an image – the more color variation the better – into a grid of circles. You can adjust the circle size, the amount of blur (falloff) and whether to invert them which shows the underlying grid.
For this image, I used:
- Size: 147
- Falloff: 0.22
- Invert: Off
- Mix: 100
You can animate this effect by setting keyframes for Mix (part of all filter settings in the Inspector) from 0 to 100.
