So here I have created some Gradient Generators. I took a look online and I found a few that were meant to be used as effects and not as generators. This is great because it avoids having to have another layer (connected clip) on your timeline but sometimes you just want a Gradient as a background. So here are 2 different Generators one is a 2-Color Gradient Generator that can be either liner or radial. The second is a 3-color Gradient Generator that can also be liner or radial.

2-Color Gradient

  • Has on screen controls for Start and End Points
  • Custom Color picker for both Start and End Point Colors (unlike the built in one)
  • Start and End Points can be Keyframed
  • Type of Gradient: Linear or Radial

3-Color Gradient

  • Has on screen Controls for Start and End Points
  • Custom Color Picker for all 3 colors

  • 2nd Color Location can be Keyframed
  • Type of Gradient: Linear or
