Filter types overview
There are 11 filter types in Motion:
Blur filters create design effects or simulate the real-world blurring that occurs due to the depth of field in photographed material.
Border filters frame layers in a composition in various ways.
Color Correction filters create design effects or fix a problem with contrast, color, gamma, or brightness.
Distortion filters change the shape of layers—warping, twisting, and pulling them in different directions.
Glow filters combine blur with brightness and color effects.
Keying filters isolate a foreground image from a uniform background color (a green screen, for example) for special effects compositing.
Sharpen filters sharpen images by creating a high-contrast overlay that emphasizes edges in the image.
Stylize filters simulate different media, such as film, television, or print.
Tiling filters create geometric patterns using shapes that are arranged into mosaics.
Time filters manipulate video clips temporally.
Video filters are utilitarian in nature, and can help prepare a project for broadcast output.
