How to use Sketch

Sketch transitions the clip into a drawn image by blending it with a predefined color and drawing sharp lines around the edges and then transitions back into the second clip.

First set the paper and ink colors. Then user the remaining controls to define how the sketch lines are rendered on the image.

  • Paper sets the background color on which the lines will be drawn. Use the color dropper to select a color directly from the video or click on the color swatch above the dropper icon to create or edit the color directly.
  • Ink sets the color of the sketch lines to be drawn.
  • Density controls the sensitivity of edge detection for rendering lines. Turn it down for little to no lines. Turn it up to increase the quantity of lines drawn.
  • Clean Up removes unwanted line garbage in between the major edge detection.
  • Width controls the thickness of the lines drawn.
  • Blend determines the mix between the paper color and the original image. Higher values let more of the original picture pass through. 
  • 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.
