Configuring an Effect

Once your effect is connected, you can configure it by changing its layer properties. There are two ways to access a layer's properties:

  • By selecting it. Its layer properties will display in the Layer Properties view, which can be added to your workspace.
  • By opening its Layer Properties dialog.
NOTE Most effects do not have a visible effect in the Camera view's default preview mode (OpenGL View ). This preview mode is very fast and is optimized for animation, but not for effects. To preview an effect as you change its parameters, you must set the Camera view's preview mode to Render View , which will update slowly, but will render the effects as they would appear in the final rendered image.
