Canvas showing effect of Prism filter

Adjust this filter using the parameter controls in the Filters Inspector:

  • Amount: Sets the radius of the blur. Drag the arrow onscreen control in the Canvas inward and outward to adjust the amount (and angle) of the blur.

  • Angle: Sets the angle of refraction. Drag the arrow onscreen control in the Canvas in an arc to adjust the angle of the blur.

  • Crop: Sets whether the filtered image is sharply cropped at its original boundaries. When this checkbox is deselected, the filter affects the edges of the image.

  • Mix: Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the blurred and refracted image.

  • Publish OSC: Publishes the filter’s onscreen controls in Final Cut Pro X. For more information on creating content for use in Final Cut Pro, see Final Cut Pro templates overview.
