I want to place a spotlight to an image.
I chose Effects > Perspective > CC Spotlight.
I did everything right, except there is no spotlight color choices.
There is only white color available.
When I try to change the color and clicked the color, it does not go beyond that.
1) It does not work because it is old CS3?
2) CS4 or CS5 have color choices? or
3) I need a plugin for changing colors?
I appreciate your help. Thank you in advance
The logic of the plug-in is a bit odd (or backwards, if you will). The default mode will only darken/ remove areas outside the light cone. In order to tint or brighten the layer and be able to set the color, you must set the mode to Light Add or higher.
Thank you for your reply.
So CS4 or CS5 do not have the color choices for spotlight?
After hearing your reply I just added a color layer,and changed its mode to overlay.
Since it is too strong, I changed the transparency mode to 25%.
I've got the effect similar to what I wanted.
But is it the way people do?
I'm not sure what you are trying to say. The plug-in behaves the same in all versions sounds more like you are making your life difficult by not applying it to the footage, but on a solid on top, which is not necessary at all...
