Manipulating layer effects

For questions about using Classic.

Hi.

How can I change the parameters of layer effects during runtime?

Hope I'm not being a pest!

There currently isn't any way to do so. It's been suggested as a feature request, I believe.

Well that is a huge letdown.

Oh well, thanks for the reply! Only one question left for me at the moment :P

For now you can try simulating a layer effect with a window-sized canvas object and 'grab layout before drawing' enabled.

that wouldn't work too well if I wanted, say, a blur effect.
which is infact what I'm trying to achieve :o

Why wouldn't that work? I just ran a test, and it seems to work fine for a full screen blur, if that's what you're trying to do.

It is something we're aware of and will be addressing very soon.

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know effects parameter manipulation for objects worked during runtime! :P

Is there any way to have a parameter for the BlurMask, then? Because I can't seem to find any...
