1. Colour Effect

Places a Colour Blending effect on the character. There are 5 effects, the first being normal and not demonstrated in the image below.


2. Degree of colour effect

Increases or decreases the potency of the effect as per the image above.

3. Character Opacity

4. Drop Shadow effect and colour

5. Switch from Drop Shadow to shade

Toggles from Drop Shadow to Character Shader.

6 & 7. Remove Character

Both do something similar, but can’t be toggled on at the same time. They remove the character but leave the drop shadow/shader effect behind. 6 removes the character, and leaves just the outside (the visible part when a character is still present) of the drop shadow, where 7 displays the whole drop shadow.

From the right: Drop shadow effect; Switched from Drop shadow to shade (as seen on the characters body); Removed Character with only the drop shadow left behind, and; Whole drop shadow displayed.
