Lyric Local Contrast Enhancement
Local Contrast Enhancement
The Lyric Local Contrast Enhancement (LCE) filter is a color-correction effect that increases the contrast in areas that already have local contrast, such as around edges and object boundaries. In small doses, it can add punch to nearly any material. The filter provides controls for setting the level of contrast enhancement and the radius of the locality area within which contrast differences are detected.
The Lyric LCE filter includes a set of effect controls that are common across all Lyric effect filters. For a detailed description of these controls, please see the Common Effect Controls documentation.
Additionally, all Lyric Effect filters can be applied through mattes or masks to constrain the filter effect to particular areas of the image. For background information on mattes and masks, please refer to the Lyric Matte Primer.
The Amount slider sets the level of local contrast enhancement applied.
The Locality slider sets the radius within which contrast changes are accounted and so sets the effective locality of the enhancment. High amount settings can produce edge halos which can be mitigated by reducing the locality radius.
The Effect Controls section is a set of common controls that are documented on the Common Effect Controls page. They can be used to achieve masked and other specialized filter effects.
