Is it possible to copy these effects into the plugin folder from CS2? It is really non-sense for Adobe to get rid of them. Yes, I understand even in 2.0, they don’t work very well, but at least there are some get around. Now CS3, there is none. Why not try to make it work, but get rid of them and dump down Premiere (Should Premier no longer be called premiere but ‘Average’ instead? I am becoming less and less enthusiatic about this product. Vegas seems have more bells and wisels and cheaper. Yes, the interface needs get used to, but HDV, 24p, Plugins… much more flexibility. The only advantage staying with Adobe is for the suite, nothing more.)
I do agree, we need these back, they should actually all be there, and working. This is a tool I use quite a bet with multiple layers to add mood to a shot, so going back and forth with AE can be a pain.
Of course if you have the budget for a colorist and an special effects team the issue goes away 🙂
You can apply the “blend effect” in CS3, was that also in CS2, I can’t recall?
I followed the steps: Effects>Channel>Calculations then go to Blending Mode and choose Multiply from a list that looks exactly as the PS’s one. And it did not work. it seems like the layer I want to apply the effect on does not change at all. Do you have any idea why?
