Motion 5 - Fisheye

background image


Distorts an object as if it were seen through the view of a fisheye lens. The result is an
extremely wide-angle warping effect also known as barrel distortion.

Use the Fisheye filter with a negative Amount value as an imprecise way to correct for
barrel distortion in images shot using a wide-angle lens.
