Motion 5 - Black Hole

background image

Black Hole

Distorts an image by causing part of it to disappear into the specified center point, and
by bowing the top, bottom, and sides inward. As the value of the Amount parameter
increases, the more the sides bow in, and the more of the image at the center point
disappears into it. The


filter has a similar effect without removing part of the image.

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