How to use 3D Intensity Grid

3D Intensity Grid breaks up the scene into a rectangular grid and moves the brighter pieces towards the camera while pushing the darker parts into the background. The scene dissolves into the new scene and the pieces fall back into place.

Use the controls to adjust the intensity grid.

  • Columns controls the number of vertical columns that appear. Turn the dial to the right for more columns, to the left for fewer columns.
  • Rows controls the number of horizontal rows that appear. Turn the dial to the right for more rows, to the left for fewer rows.
  • Amplitude controls how far in and out the grid pieces move before fading into the second scene.
  • Depth sets the distance to move the set of expanding panes away from the camera. Used in conjunction with Tilt, this creates a three dimensional view of the moving grid.
  • Tilt sets the direction to tilt the panes as they pull away when Depth is turned up.
  • Cross Fade controls the rate at which the first scene scene dissolves into the second on each pane. (Note: the distance is calculated based on the combined scenes, so a scene that goes from dark to light will start in the background and move close to the camera as it changes in intensity.)
  • Invert makes the darkest parts of the scene, instead of the lightest, fly toward the camera.
  • Check the Cubes box to give the grid pieces a three-dimensional look.
  • Background sets a background scene.

The Drop Shadow group allows you to set the style and position of a shadow in order to make the image parts stand out against the background image the best.

  • Offset sets the distance of the shadow from the object.
  • Angle sets the direction the shadow is cast.
  • Blur controls the width of the shadow edge blur.
  • Color sets the color of the shadow
  • Opacity controls the transparency of the shadow.
