Using OpenFX Plugins


All OpenFX plugins can be customized by adjusting their parameters. Settings are organized by category and some of them can be expanded and collapsed for clarity. Parameters can also be animated over time—see Animating an Effect.

Some effects also have visual controls to set the position or angle. If you want to adjust the controls for your effect, you must do so in OpenGL mode. To see the effect in OpenGL mode, you need to connect a Render Preview node to your effect.
