Tip #1841: Combine Filters for Better Comic Look
Often, combining filters looks better than a single filter alone.
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.
