NextPreviousHomeSmooth "fade away" effect as objects get further away

rustyjames | 10 years ago | 1 comment | 2,176 views

I apologize if this topic has already been discussed or if this feature already exists, but I was unable to find a solution or explaination to this within previous articles.

Currently when any type of object (text, EPS, image, etc) is positioned a certain distance away it appears to simply get cut off. Is there currently a way to make the transition into this "cut off" area more smooth? In other words, is there a way to make objects simply fade away smoothly as they get further from the camera? I hope I'm articulating this cleary enough.

Here's a link to an image that I quickly put together in Photoshop to illustrate my point:

I do realize that you can change the object size and/or camera "field of view" to have objects become infinitely smaller until they disappear out of sight. However, it would be nice to have the option of making items fade out into darkness or whatever the background layer is.. and to do this very smoothly in a gradient type of fashion.

If this option doesn't currently exist, it would be a great addition. It would also be nice to have the ability to adjust exactly how gradual things disappear.

Thanks in advance for your help and Michiel I can't thank you enough for such any amazing program! I realize all of the effort you've put into BluffTitler and I appreciate it. Honestly, even if you didn't add any more features it would still maintain it's status as one of the best products of it's kind! Thanks again!

BluffTitler does not feature a fog effect, but you can simulate fog by using the TRANSPARENCY property.

Simply make the object more transparent when it's further away from the camera.
