Modify Layers

Modify Layers

Adjust properties, add effects, and compose your project.

Adjusting Properties

Each layer you create has a unique set of controls. These controls are called "Properties." You can adjust properties on practically anything, such as the color of a shape, the font family of a text layer, the dimensions of an image, the position of a video layer, and much more.

You adjust properties on the right side of the Editor on the Inspector.

Adding Effects

Sometimes, you'll want to extend the functionality of certain layers – adding controls to animate drawing along a path, applying a blur to a layer, or making a groovy wave effect. In each of these scenarios, you'll add Effects to your layer. Each effect has its own unique controls that will appear at the bottom of the layer's Inspector.

Compositing

Layers stack one on top of the other on Fable. The act of defining the way these layers stack is called "Compositing."

On Fable, all compositing happens on the Layer List. Here, you can control in which order layers should be displayed. To change the order of your layers, drag and drop the layers within the layer list.
