Motion 5 - Poke

background image


Distorts an image by bowing the top, bottom, and sides inward, and appears to push the
object into the Canvas at the specified Center point. As the value of the Amount parameter
increases, the more the sides bow in. The

Black Hole

filter has a similar effect but also

removes part of the image at the center point.

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