How to use Colored Pencil

Colored Pencil draws the lines and details with a colored pencil and then shades in between with lighter colors while cross-fading between two clips.
 
Setup

Set the picture color properties and then dial up the detail and fill characteristics to control the pencil rendering.

  • Color Shift shifts the colors around the color wheel, for example so blues become greens and greens become yellows. This is useful to effect a subtle (or not so subtle) change in the color palette.
  • Color adjusts the color richness, or saturation of the image. Turn this down to remove color, turn it up to enhance the colors.
  • Brightness sets the over all light level of the image.
  • Contrast sets the image contrast. Above 0 increases contrast, for darker darks and lighter lights. Below 0 reduces contrast, resulting in a duller image.
  • Details controls how many lines and fine details to draw in the picture.
  • Fill sets the strength of pencil shading between the lines.
  • Tempo sets the speed at which the effect changes the image. For a sudden change, set the Tempo high. For a gradual change, set it low.
  • Attack controls how fast the transition move from start to full effect.
  • Release controls how fast the transition moves from full effect to end.
  • Cross Fade sets the percentage of the transition that includes a cross fade of the from one clip to the next. Turn down Cross Fade for an abrupt switch between images. Turn it up for a gradual mix.
