    Hi all, can somebody please explain how to do custom colour effects like in the below screen shot (indicated by red arrow).
    It has multiple colours and a small time clock icon below it.
    It was produced by somebody else and I am trying to figure out how they did it/
    Thanks

    you right click on the colour which brings up the colour curve dialog box, from there, you can select one of the presets or by clicking in the bar below the colour set "points/markers". You can double click on the point or the square of the marker to change it's colour. Slide the marker to change its position. export your wonderful combination or load someone else's. There's a few different blend modes.
    I'm sure @keithsw1111 has done a video on this somewhere. :)

    I've forgotten how you delete a marker you don't want.

    Maybe the delete key after clicking on the marker mights delete it.

    That's a useful little tool that I didn't know of, thanks!

    Also noticed clicking on the clock changes the direction the effect works, pretty cool!!
