Tip #597: Create Striking Duo-Tone Images in Motion
Threshold creates striking duo-tone images, which you can then colorize.
If you want to create striking, duo-tone backgrounds, the Threshold filter in Apple Motion is exactly what you need.
The Threshold filter converts full-color images into stark, black-and-white images which you can then colorize using the same filter. The operation is simple:
- Select an image. Then, apply Filters > Color > Threshold.
- Instantly the image is a black-and-white duotone.
- Next, select one of the two color boxes and adjust colors to suit. For me, the most effective color to adjust is the darker box.
