FEATURE: Using filters only on characters or overlays

For example, we can use the dim filter on a character to make them appear as silhouettes. We need this especially when the background is already dark and you don’t want to ruin it by dimming everything.
Or we can play with the saturation and opacity so it gives the effect that the character is a hologram or a ghost.

It’s hard to make good scenes by adding the characters as overlays because they’re not going to be animated.

Really? :thinking: This is a good idea but I do have some thoughts. Personally, I think you can make a silhouette already- if you want them to talk, you can change the display name to the name of the character. You can lready make them a silhouette by:
Body: Silhouette
Brow: No preview Available
Hair: Chosen Hair, Black SIlhouette
Eyes: None
Face: Choose face
Nose: Doesn’t really matter
Lips: None
I have made them for my characters- perhaps you could have them standing in dim light, then fading and having the same characterin the same spot placed beforehand not in silhouette fade back into 1?
I thought you could fade characters as well, I think there’s even a tutorial on that :thinking:
So yes, I think you can make characters faded halfway as well, iI’m almost completely sure that was a tutorial, and you can make silhouette characters move/ faded.
Forgive me if I’m wrong.
Otherwise, Support. :blush:

I didn’t know these options and tricks were provided… Now that I checked, Silhouette is available on LL only. But even so, I don’t think it will apply on the clothing as well…?

Oh yes, that is true, I can’t put clothing on for them- so I do wish there was silhouette filter for it.
Good point! Sorry!

I think it would make more sense to have the possibility to layer filters.

Moved to Writer’s Portal Features since this sounds like a portal feature and not art or animation. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics, and feel to PM me if there are any questions. :wink:
