Ive got this premade project from another person, its a slideshow. I can customize it at will in most aspects but for some reason the initial slide has a very dark edge. The brightness of the slide is not customizable in this project, certainly not according to the instructions manual.
How can I lighten up areas of that slide?
Im guessing it involves masks but Ive tried it using masks and for some reason it applies the effect to the entire screen and not just the slide. Ive checked google and this forum but havent found quite the answer Im looking for (in this forum someone asked about the same but he didnt receive any helpful answers)
Id appreciate any help
you can try masking the area and add exposure to the layer. make sure mask is set to ADD.
ALT click on the word "exposure" and then down in the layer settings, under compositing options add Mask 1 (or whatever) to the mask reference..
that links the exposure plugin only to the mask.
hope that helps
it did help a lot, many thanks
