9.6. Project review

Application switching lets Peacock, Phoenix, and Raven share their tools. This fills in any lack of feature in any given application. Peacock might have vast power to create effects but it has no way to generate text, and Phoenix's effect and filters are pretty limited. However, these two applications can lend their features to the other giving you the best of both. You learned in this project how to perform application switching from inside Peacock. Using Phoenix's text tool is flexible because the resource is updated when changing focus of the applications. You easily created a text element, positioned it on the button, and added it to your file, which gives you a tool that was not offered in Peacock. In the next project, you are introduced to Blackboxed files. These dynamic effect files can be used to automate a process, quickly reuse complex effects, be used as custom filters, and more.
