That's right, it is control click. Thought I'd tried that! :p I could swear it used to be alt-click. Anyway, thanks! Espen Jakobsen Multimedia Designer http: massiverhino.no http: www.espenja.com

It's not natural to me to control how violent the camera shakes by controlling its wiggle frequency, I would use the wiggle amplitude for this purpose. Frequency is a subtle thing, it says for one sec
wiggle frequency based on camera speed??

I've got my standard camera wiggle where I've linked the frequency&litude to a null object with sliders. Very often, high wiggle frequency look good if the camera is moving fast over large spaces,

I'm not sure about CPU and graphics card, but you need lots of memory! Anyting below 4GB is too little if you want your computer to do other things while you're in PS.
Adjustment layers with filters?

Is there any way to put filters on adjustment layers like in After Effects, or do I have to merge alle the layers For instance if I want to add an edge blur to the whole image, do I have to merge it
Re: Adjustment layers with filters?
by Mike Jones 10 years ago
You can apply filters to an adjustment layer, just like you would on a normal one, However if you are using a mask on your adjustment layer you need re-apply it when you add the filter. One way to do

Boole object place both the objects in it. A subtract B means the top object will subtract the bottom object. Boole objects tend to be pretty processor intensive and you may cause some speed issues or

Hi there! You could apply an expression like this to the position property of your layers: x = thisComp.layer(thisLayer, +1).transform.position 0 + thisComp.layer("controls").effect("Xoffset")("Slider
