Using the Highlight Node
You can use the Highlight node to create light zones of your artwork. Anything outside of the given artwork will be automatically clipped.
- Select a drawing layer.
- Click the Add Layers button and select Effects > Highlight.
The Highlight effect is parented to the selected layer.
- In the Drawing or Camera view, create a drawing on a new layer that will act as the matte.
- In the Timeline view, click the Collapse/Expand button on the effect layer.
Drag and drop the matte layer beside the Matte field.
- Display the Highlight properties and adjust the properties to control the type and amount of blur and the colour of the highlight effect—see Highlight Node.
