Once you have applied a visual effect to your scene view, you can make adjustments before creating a final image or video output. Some visual effects include customizable properties for adjusting the strength, color, or size of the effect. The last active visual effect and its properties are preserved for open views in the project. If the view is closed and reopened, the visual effect is removed.
To access properties of a visual effect, click the View tab, and in the Scene group, click the Visual Effect drop-down arrow and click Visual Effect Settings . The Visual Effect Settings dialog box appears, where you can activate an effect, change the current effect, or change the properties. All changes on the Visual Effect Settings dialog box are applied immediately in the active view.
