effect. The Simple Choker appears to round and soften the matte
edge slightly already. So, I applied the Simple Choker effect, and
took the value to negative 3.6, because negative values spread the

Effect Controls panel and pressed Ctrl+D(Win)/Cmd+D(Mac) on
my keyboard to duplicate the effect. On the duplicate, I changed
the value to a positive 2. This replicates what we did with the
Matte Choker effect because it spreads, then chokes (Fig. 11.5).
