Lyric Water Color 2
Water Color 2
The Lyric Water Color 2 filter is a second water-color stylizing effect that simulates a water-color with more defined, painterly edges and a more pronounced color wash. In its default setting, it removes all specular highlights to further reflect the wash-style, but they can be selectively restored.
The Lyric Water Color 2 filter includes a set of effect controls that are common across all Lyric effect filters. For a detailed description of these controls, please see the Common Effect Controls documentation.
Additionally, all Lyric Effect filters can be applied through mattes or masks to constrain the filter effect to particular areas of the image. For background information on mattes and masks, please refer to the Lyric Matte Primer.
The Wash Spread slider controls the color blurring, higher values simulate a broader wash, with colors spreading into one another. This can also have the effect of adding a dark halo to feature edges.
Edge Definition controls the intensity of the painted edgework.
With Highlights set at 0, all specular highlights in the original source image are removed. Increasing the Highlights control will gradually restore the highlights, higher values restoring more of the highlight range within the original material.
The Effect Controls section is a set of common controls that are documented on the Common Effect Controls page. They can be used to achieve masked and other specialized filter effects.
