Effects can be applied to the layer or the output in different stages of the software: in Preload Preview, in Live Editor and on the Render Output.
There are over 130 effects avaliable in MXWendler and they include Color Corrections, Animations, Blurs, Transformations and so on. In StageDesigner up to 4 effects can be applied on each layer, and on FXServer up to 8 per layer. A final effect can be applied on the render output.
Effects can be influenced and automated by Expressions.
