Motion 5 - Bevel

background image


Creates a bevelled border around the edges of an image by superimposing an angled
frame over the original image. The simulated direction of reflected light and opacity of
the bevel can be adjusted to vary the effect.

This filter causes rasterization in 3D groups. For more information on rasterization, see
