Render Effects

This sub-menu contains three effects that create new renderings.  Effects found in the Render sub-menu generally replace all color information in the active layer or selection.

Clouds

This renders a randomized "cloud" effect to the layer or selection.  The effect can be configured in Scale and Roughness as well as utilizing a specific Blend Mode to merge the effect with the contents of the existing layer or selection.

Clouds are rendered using both the Primary and Secondary colors.   To render Clouds in a single color, set the Secondary color's Alpha value to zero in the expanded Colors Window.
