Single-button vignette layer?
on Sep 27, 2018 at 5:35:35 pm

Is there any tool/script that would generate a vignette layer at the touch of a button?

Ideally, such a tool would:
generate a full-comp black layer;
add an inverse mask to it;
feather the mask by some fraction of the X&Y;
possibly add some bezier corners and midpoints;
set the blending mode to DARKEN/MULTIPLY.


I think that's my whole wish list. I know I've written a lot of the pseudo-code above. The tricky bits would be making it universal for any shape comp.

But, thought I'd check FIRST.

Well, if you can do it with effects, the circle effect alone can get you 90% of the way, you could save it as a preset and just double click it anytime you want, without nothing selected it would create a comp size grey solid and apply. (You already have the Vignette Lightning preset to test it)

But really, how many times a day do you need that? Cause personaly I just do: Crtl + Y, set to black, double click round mask tool, Ctrl + Shift + I, "f" to feather. Its like 10s. Even though I have access to the Sapphire Vignette plugin thats pretty robust, I rarely use it.
