How to Add Filters

You can use this built-in tool to make adjustments and add effects to the source images or the whole movie. To adjust Image 1 or Image 2, click the Adjust button on the edit panel or choose the Image/Adjust menu. To adjust the whole movie, click the Filter button on the movie effects panel or choose the Movie/Filter menu.

There are total 22 filters in FantaMorph version 4.0 where 9 filters for color adjustment (brightness, contrast, red, green, blue, hue, saturation, negative, gray) and 13 for image effect (smooth, bur, Gaussian blur, zoom blur, radial blur, sharpen, emboss, mosaic, oil paint, splash, cylinder, whirl, pinch). The best way to understand these effects is to try them out. Choose effects alone or in various combinations to discover what is best for your purpose.
