how to use render effects?


Recommended Posts

All you need to do is make a selection prior to running the effect. The easiest way of doing this is to put your text on a separate layer and select all of it with the magic wand + the Shift key held down.

ok thanks i used wand and union selection. it worked on some but not others. some effects affected the outside of the text and some affected inside of text which is what i was going for. others did a square cover but i was able to move selected letters with effect and cut out the leftovers. thanks for your responses    one of the mistakes i made was not switching colors prior to effects so i could see what  was going on lol.

If you do the selection correctly, no properly functioning effect to will affect the region outside the selection. Make sure you've selected the region you want to modify, not its complement. Often with things like text, it's easier to select the background then to select the text. Make sure when you do that you remember to invert the selection before running the effect.
