Reference Manual

SketchFX applies a series of visual effects one after the other in a bottom down order. There are three kind of effects:

  • image Image: generates an image from different sources: file, SketchUp scene, a particular style or even a constant color; images can be affected by child effects;
  • effect Filter: alters an image with its particular properties; can be an Image child or can affect all the previous (above) effects;
  • mask Mask: hides or shows only certain areas of an Image. Can only be child of an Image.
