Solution 2: Use the Gradient effect in combination with the
in solution 2 is that the bottom of the original image's luminance
values are altered from the RGB 0. We'll now solve that. There
are two solutions to this problem, the following is the more
elaborate one, but it will add power and facilitate the next
stages. You may have already figured out the easy solution,
if not read on.
the video opacity of the gradient effect to 100%
the shift key, drag out a duplicate of the gradient effect
directly below the original.
you created in step 2 will become your matte. So, since mattes
have just luminance values, we need to dump our chroma . So
set the RGB 0 to black (or 0 for all values) and set the RGB
1 to white (or 100 for all values).
the matte effect below the duplicate gradient on video layer
V4. The sourcing defaults should be correct. V1 should be
the original colored gradient and V2 should source to the
grayscale gradient duplicate.
render a preview of this composite you will notice that the
lower half of the image is unaffected by the gradient.
quick way to solve this immediate problem is to make the opacity
of the bottom half of the gradient to be zero -- this is accomplished
by changing the "Opacity 0" value to 0.)
