If you’re one of those people who think of the Circle effect as a useless plugin than I hope this tutorial will help you change your mind.
Everything originates from a Circle. With that in mind I’ll do my best to show you how useful this tiny little effect can be. You’ll learn how to create vignetting, shade objects so they look more 3d, and also create some cool looking graphics elements, all withing as little amount of layers and masking as possible.
I use the Circle effect very often. I could even risk saying that it is the second effect that I use after Fractal Noise. Having all the controllers on the effects palette accessible at all times saves me a lot of time. I mostly use the Circle effect to do some masking, but it can also be used for different tasks.
If you find some other cool ways to use the Circle effect share them with me and the rest of us. Post a comment.
Now sit back and enjoy the tutorial.
