Temporal effects alter layers based on time.


Creates repeated versions of the layer, offset in time, which are blended onto the current frame.

Echo Time - the time difference between each echo.
Decay - each subsequent echo will be less visible.


Motion trails

Adds a fake motion blur based on the movement of the layer.

Force MB


Changes the playback speed of the layer.

The speed effect does not change the duration of the layer on the timeline. If you reduce the speed of the layer you will not be able to see any frames which are not played before the end of the layer.

The Black Time Shift and White Time Shift values specify where in time the displacement source is from.
