The Warp Effect is a canvas mode effect. By itself it does nothing. The warp effect distorts the pixels in the layers below it. The Canvas option in Layer Blending must be enabled for it to work.



Warp Type

Defines the type of Warp to use.

"water drops" Adds ripples simulation a stone falling in a lake.

"dissolve" pieces of the underlying effect disappear and reappear over time.

"circle reveal" underlying effect fades in/out with a circular pattern.

"banded swirl" mix the underlying effect, like mixing colors in water.

"ripple" bounce the underlying effect up and down like it was laying on a trampoline.

"single water drop" Adds ripple simulation a single water drop.

"circular swirl" mix the underlying effect, with a circular pattern.

"drop" underlying effect 'melts' downward.

"wavy" Move the underlying effect to simulate a flag waving in the wind.

"sample on" Sample one pixel from the underlying effect. The X,Y slider control the X,Y location of the pixel to sample.


"Constant" repeat the effect over and over.

"In" Preform the effect once with the "In" direction.

"Out" Preform the effect once with the "Out" direction.


X screen location of the effect.


Y screen location of the effect.

Cycle Count

If "Constant" treatment is enabled, this specified the number of times the effect repeats.


Adjust the speed of the effect


Adjusts the rate the "ripple" and "banded swirl" manipulate the effect.

This Effect using a lot of CPU resources. If it is placed on large model groups, like whole house model groups, it WILL increase render times significantly.
