Request - Vignette as Adjustment Layer (video demo)

Recommended Posts

I'd like to put in a request for Vignette as an Adjustment Layer tool :)

It would be fantastic to be able to go back and change it whenever you need to.

Also giving it some more options than usual vignette tools would put AP ahead of other programs.

I mean not even the mighty PS has a dedicated vignette tool, the closest PS have is the "Lens Correction / Custom tab" and only Amount and Midpoint.

 

I made a demo video of how it could look like.

Okay now we've just got to have this! Man it looks like it's already done. How did you do this? Amazing demo.

 

I'm excited, can you tell?  :)

it looks like the version of AP shown in the video is complete different. It looks like it has the Macro Persona and other persona in there.

 

Is this the surprise Andy mentioned will be coming in a few weeks?

This technique is a very clever use of AP's ability to use both pixel-based and vector-based content seamlessly in a single working environment.  Very nicely done and the video makes it very easy to understand the concept and all of its features and powerful adjustments.  This technique could be extended to make any number of dodge and burn vector-based masks that would complement the available raw developer gradient adjustment, without the need for brushing in an edit.  A library of mask shapes could be made with each having its own macro to generate the initial shape.  The user could then modify the shape to their liking for the specific application.  

 

The example in the video of the vignette being converted to a curve to conform to some of the landscape features is a good example of taking, say, a gradient adjustment (a graduated neutral density filter, but in post) and adapting its effect to the landscape.  Etc.

 

Have you tried creating a Macro to build the basic structure of the vignette, with some of the controls exposed to the user?  It may be an ad-hoc way to provide the tool in a semi-automated manner to users.

 

Nice work!

But you can make a macro to set up the two layers and apply a Gaussian Blur effect to the white, rounded corner shape.  At least those steps can be automated.  Too bad you cannot even Group layers together in the Macro recorder.

Just to be sure, my understanding is that AP DOES have a Vignette tool which is available as a adjustment layer. The only thing is that it doesn't offer all the manipulation features shown in the video. Or did i miss something?
