Time filters overview

Time filters manipulate layers temporally. Time filters are most often used to modify moving footage.

There are five Time filters:

  • Echo leaves a streaking trail behind the moving areas of an image.

  • Scrub allows you to change the timing of the clip without moving it in the Timeline, via a virtual playhead.

  • Strobe strobes the image, resulting in moving images that appear to skip frames as they play.

  • Trails draws light or dark trails following a moving image.

  • WideTime stretches the image’s motion out in time.
