What’s a Patch?

Patches are shapes that are able to modify the assigned asset. For example, a shape may
add a tint or a blur filter to the assigned asset. Some patches have a motion element
although most are static. Patches can be positioned and sized just like normal shapes,
and have still or video assets assigned to them.

Unlike normal shapes, you are not able to create custom patches.

Patches appear in the Apple group of the Shapes tab along with the normal shapes. You
can tell which shapes are patches by choosing Patch Shapes in the Button Inspector’s
Style tab.
