"John Dickinson and other guest presenters from around the globe will take you on a whirlwind tour through an effect."
by John Dickinson,

This time: "Add Grain"

"The Add Grain effect generates new noise from nothing and does not take samples from existing noise. Instead, a number of parameters and presets for different types of film can be used to synthesize many different types of noise or grain. You can modify virtually every characteristic of this noise, control its color, apply it to the image in several ways, even animate it or apply it selectively to only a part of your image."
