Tip #1021: Effects Playground: Sunset Butterfly
Most effects are not complicated. Rather. they combine multiple settings to create something cool.
OK, I confess. I didn’t plan this effect, I just kept asking “What happens if I do this?” … and I ended up with this sunset butterfly.
Here’s what I did. In the same group in Motion combine:
- Library > Content > Images > Folio > Clear Vase 01
- Library > Content > Particle Images > Butterfly
Make sure the vase is on top then select the Clear Vase:
- Apply Inspector > Properties > Blend Mode: Soft Light
- Apply Filters > Color > Gradient Color. Then set the gradient to Burnt Ember from the “rectangles” icon to the right of the gradient itself.
Adjust the size and angle of the butterfly so it looks good to you.
Apply Filters > Color > Levels to the butterfly and adjust it, again, so it looks “right” to you.
