Brightness and Contrast

As for Brightness and Contrast effects, it does not affect the layer you apply it until you highlight a preset or set new values of the effects.

brightness contrast

  • Brightness: To increase brigthness drag the slider to the right and to lower brightness drag the slider to the left.
  • Contrast: To lower contrast move the slider to the left and it will show negative figures whereas to increase contrast is to drag slider to display postive figures.

Color Balance

The shadows, midtones and highlights come in a balance of red, green and blue and you can adjust their balance on a video you apply.

This option allows you to maintain layers original brighness value when you are adjusting its colours.

Shadows

  • Red Balance: To decrease the red tones in the shadow areas of the image slide it to the left whereas to increase the red tones slide it to the right.
  • Green Balance: To decrease the green tones in the shadow areas of the image slide to the left whereas to increase green tones in the image slide to the right
  • Blue Balance: To decrease the blue tones in the shadow areas of the image slide to the left whereas to increase the blue tones slide to the right.

Mid-Tones

  • Red Balance: To decrease the red tones in the mid-tone areas of the image slide to the left wheareas to increase the red tones in the image slide to the right.
  • Green Balance: To decrease the green tones in the mid-tone areas of the image slide to the left whereas to increase the green tones in the image slide to the right.
  • Blue Balance: To decrease the blue tones in the mid-tone areas of the image slide to the left while to increase the blue tones in the image slide to the right.

Highlights

  • Red Balance: To decrease the red tones in the highlights of the image slide to the left whereas to increase the red tones in the image slide to the right.
  • Green Balance: To decrease the green tones in the highlights of the image slide to the left while to increase to the green tones in the image slide to the right.
  • Blue Balance: To decrease the blue tones in the highlights of the image slide to left whereas to increase the blue tones in image slide to the right.

Color Temperature

Lighting area of video recording determines the color temperature of the raw footage. If the footage was recorded using street lights only, there will be a lot of yellows and red in the video clip. On the other recording under fluorescent lighting will see a video have excessive blue temperature.

This Color Temperature effect has limited presets like Blue Sky or Candle Light that emulate the different temperatures of different types of light.

Temperature: Dragging the slider to left the will reduce color temperature will decrease and enhance the red and orange colors.On the other hand, dragging the slider to the right increases color temperature and enhance the blue colors.

Crush Blacks & Whites

With this effect you will be able to adjust control the levels of blacks and whites in an image.

video color adjustment

  • Black: Moving the slider to the right increases the amount of black in the image. The further right you move the darker the images becomes and a little move will see less darkeness in the image.
  • White: Moving the slider to the right increases the amount of white in your image. The further right you move the whiter the images becomes and a slight move will see less whiteness in the image.

Curves

The Curve effect is presented in a graph. The horizontal axis of the graph displays the original values of the image, whereas the vertical axis of the graph shows the output values, that you entered while changing the graph.

enhance video color

To enhance the image highlights, adjust the effect from the top right and the shadows can be changed at the lower left corner of the graph. Strong contrasts are evident on the steep sides of the graph whereas slightly steep sides constitutes softer contrast between highlights and shadows.

The curve effect consists of two presets.The fist one resets the graph to a straight line whereas forms the s-curve on the graph.

By choosing the s-curve preset the center of the graph becomes steep. This translates to increase in contrasts in the mid-tones and a decrease in the level of detail in highlights and shadows. This preset is helpful when adding details where the focus frame is human face.

Curves are also used to ehance the RGB channels by combining or individually. Individual adjustment aids in mending white balance or lighting.

Exposure

The Exposure effect allows more light in through the camera lens. By adjusting this properties it manipulates the video clip to be darker or brighter more naturally unlike adjusting the brightness. Also, when you increase the Exposure value you will increase the contrast between the brightest and the darkest areas of an image whereas reducing Exposure decreases contrast.

The shadows, highlights, and mid-tones effects and the controlled individually.

control video color

  • Exposure: To decrease the brightness of the image drag the slider to the left, while dragging the slider to the right increase the brightness of an image.
  • Offset: It fabricates the shadows and mid-tones brighter or darker.
  • Gamma: It manipulates the midtones of your image.

Gamma

modify video color

Gamma effect affects mid-tones of an image and mild effects on a mild effect on highlights and shadows. The gamma values which are red, green, and blue color channels are adjustable.

  • Red Gamma: It adds or lowers the red tones in an image. The changes made will mostly affect midtones.
  • Green Gamma: It adds or lowers the green tones in an image. What you will change will mostly affect the midtones.
  • Blue Gamma: It increases or reduces the blue tones in an image. The changes made mostly affects the midtones.

Hotspots

This effect enables you to choose the brightest areas of your image and adjust them.

adjust video saturation

  • Threshold: It sets the brightness limit brightness depending on the effect. Sections beyond the limit will maintain their detail.
  • Threshold Add Color: Sections of the image that are beyond the threshold will be filled with the color that is choosen in this property. The choosen default colour is usually black which can aid to differentiate hotspots in the images inuse for compositing reasons.
  • Saturation: It adds or reduces the intensity of colors in the sections of the image that are brighter than the threshold.
  • Brightness: It allows you to modify the brightness of all parts of the image that are brighter than the threshold.
  • Smooth Source: It blurs the source image before defining the threshold. It makes the transition sections around the threshold finer and decreases coarseness.

Hue, Saturation & Lightness

You can adjust hue, saturation, and lightness of your videos. The Master option adjusts the hue shift, saturation and the lightness, of the whole image. Changing a particular color option enables you to change only certain family color.

adjust video lightness

  • Hue Shift: Allows to adjust colors by moving them around the color wheel. You can define the appropriate number of degrees you want to rotate. The colors are ordered along the wheel according to how the effects are listed that is Red, Yellow and Green. The angle between the any of the color families is 60 degrees. To makes changes on the whole image you need to use Master Control or the modifications will only affect the selected color family.
  • Saturation: Define the generall intensity of colors in an image. The changes are made on the whole image when using Master control otherwise, changes will only apply on the chosen image.
  • Lightness: Turns the image to be brighter or darker. The entire image will only be affected if you use the Master control or else the adjustments will only be applied on the selected color family. If you want the image to look less saturated then you need to set lightness value higher. Therefore, it is advisable to change both Lightness and Saturation.

Levels Histogram

Levels Histogram displays indepth information about the channel composition of the video clip implemented as well as the tonal range. You can deploy it to control the tonality of a layer manually.

add color effect

Upon adding Levels Histogram effect to a footage it will show the full-color range on your image. At the furthest right you will see tones of pure white whereas the tones of pure black are visble on the far left of the graph. Also, the height of the graph at any point depicts the frequency of a tone in the image. When you adjust the color channel in the Channels menu you will be able to see the tonal range of the chosen channel.

White Balance

The White Balance effect enables you to rectify the footage recorded with bad white balance. To correct the parts of the image with poor white or grey balance, you will use the color pipette.

edit white balance

  • Color: Color enables you to the white color by using a pipette to choose the pure white color from a footage. This option also enables you to shift the white baalance to another color.

YUV Color Correction

This correction wheels makes use of the YUV color space rather than the RGB color space. The YUV color space considers the human color perception.

By using this effect, it will turn your video clip to the YUV color space for modification. Once you make the adjustments you can then turn the video clip back to the RGB color space. This YUV correction tool isolates the brightness of the image from the color data. The Y and V channels houses the color data displayed on the horizontal and vertical axes that cuts through the middle of the wheel while the the U channel stores the brightness data.
