Combine with ProPixie & ProSmoke


In darker settings, natural crepuscular rays reveal the dust and smoke in the environment.  For a more composited look, editors can combine ProSmoke 5k & ProPixie 5k with an “add” blend mode.  With the FCPX mask effect, users can create a feathered mask to isolate just the areas that require particles.
