  • The Start Point by default is located at the very top center of the composition and is the strongest most solid part of the Start Color. Use the crosshair control or X Y numerical parameters to the reposition of this point from top of the image to a new location.
  • The Start Color color selector allow you to change the colors of the top color to suit your needs.
  • The Middle Color color selector allow you to change the colors of the middle color to suit your color ramp needs. This control is deselected unless Three Color is chosen under Ramp Color.
  • The End Point by default is located at the very bottom center of the composition and is the strongest most solid part of the End Color. Use the crosshair control or X Y numerical parameters to the reposition of this point from bottom of the image to a new location.
  • The End Color color selector allow you to change the colors of the bottom color to suit your liking.
  • Click the Reverse Colors button to switch the Start and End Colors.

    • The Start Alpha slider fades down the Start Color opacity to reveal the background or footage underneath the generated layer.
    • The Middle Alpha slider fades down the Middle Color opacity to reveal the background or footage underneath the generated layer.
    • The End Alpha slider fades down the End Color opacity to reveal the background or footage underneath the generated layer.
  • The Falloff control will move the position of the blending falloff between the colors when this setting is changed.
  • Radial Spread is turned on is Radial is chosen from the Ramp Shape, and controls the width of the radius.
  • The Noise control adds slight noise patterns to your gradient for a more organic look that covers the banding look you may encounter in some gradient instances.
