Often, combining filters looks better than a single filter alone.

The source image (top) and the finished comic look.

The Comic filter in Motion converts a photo into a “comic book look.” And, while it isn’t bad, it can be better. Here’s how to enhance sharpness without losing the comic touch.

  • The top image in the screen shot illustrates the source image. Import the source into Motion, then select it in the Layers panel.
  • Add Filters > Stylize > Color Emboss to the image. This creates a high contrast edge to the color areas in the image.

NOTE: This especially helps with hair and eye detail.

  • Now apply Filters > Stylize > Comic. Because of the enhanced edging, your comic book look will be sharper and more detailed, without losing the comic look.
