A preset-driven Transition plugin that transforms your layers between stylized cartoon and painterly effects.
Getting Started in a timeline
- Dragging the transition over your edit in the timeline, drop it at the end or beginning of a clip, or in between two clips.
- Modify the Duration either by entering a length in the field, or dragging directly in the timeline.
- You can choose the Alignment (Center at Cut, Start at Cut, End at Cut, Custom Start) either by positioning the transition in the timeline, or by choosing from the Alignment drop-down in some host applications.
Getting Started in a compositor
- Apply the transition to the layer you want to transition from.
- Choose the footage layer you would like to transition to in the Transition B drop-down menu. (Note for Motion users: drag the footage layer up to the Transition B box).
- Animate your transition using the Mix slider from 0-100%. Set a keyframe for 0% where the transition should start, then set another at 100% for the end.
Modify the Transition
- The Cartoon Dissolve slider lets you control the percentage of cartoon effect mixed in to the original layer. The higher the number, the stronger the cartoon effect.
- Choose from one of 21 presets in the ToonIt Preset drop-down menu to get different cartoon effects.
- Lighten raises the brightness of the image. This corrects any unwanted color blending in the cartooning process. The closer the two colors are, the more likely they’ll get blended by the process. By raising the Lightness (or brightness), you re-separate those colors a bit.
- Definition accentuates detail in the image and can be increased to sharpen the image or decrease to soften the overall cartoon look.
- The Slide Direction drop-down menu can be used to change which direction the transition is sliding into frame: Right, Left, Upwards, Downwards.
- The Slide Animation drop-down menu gives multiple choices of interpolation styles for the animation of your transition. The default is 'Ease In Out Quad'.
- The Dolly slider gives you control to move the camera closer in or further away along the Z-axis from the transitioning layers. Bringing the control down to 0 will move the layer directly to the camera while turning the slider up will move the camera further away from the layer.
- The Background Color picker control lets you choose what color you’d like to have as for the background of the transition.
