  • 360 Glow Darks: Functions similar to a standard glow but affects dark areas rather than light areas in 360° video.
  • 360 Lightsword (2-point Auto): Provides a rapid method of applying lightsword effects to your 360° film requiring placing a point on the hilt and a point on the blade tip.
  • 360 Lightsword (4-point Manual): Allows you to implement lightsword effects into 360° film with precise positioning, with two points defining the edges of the hilt and two points defining the edges of the blade tip.
  • 360 Lightsword (Glow Only): Applies the lightsword effect’s custom glow behavior to any 360° video layer without providing an interface for easy lightsword generation.
  • 360 Magnify: Zooms in on a specific area of the 360° video layer. The shape, size, and position of the magnification can all be changed.
  • 360 Neon Path: Add the neon effect to text and shape layers of the 360° video to create life-like neon sign graphics that interact with surrounding elements.

  • Clone: The clone stamp is useful for duplicating or removing specific parts of a layer.
  • Text: Apply advanced, customizable text to your footage.
  • Dot Matrix: Similar to the half tone effect, Dot Matrix creates a look similar to a black and white newspaper print, but dots are based on a grid of squares.
  • Pixel Sort: Sorts the pixels in the video based on brightness. This can be used to create some amazingly stylized effects, as seen in many popular films, including Ghost in the Shell.
