Lyric Luma Brightness and Contrast
Luma Brightness and Contrast
The Lyric Luma Brightness and Contrast filter is a color-correction effect that provides brightness and contrast adjustments on the luminance channel of the source video. This enables simple level correction without distorting the colors, as usually happens with standard brightness and contrast controls. It can be used to produce stylistic wash effects as in the example above on the left or straightforward color correction as on the right. The filter also includes a utility saturation control which is applied after the luminance is adjusted and can be used to fine-tune a color correction.
The Lyric Luma Brightness and Contrast 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 Brightness pushes all the luminance up or down, brightening or darkening the scene. Higher Contrast values spread the luminance levels, pushing the darks lower and the brights higher increasing dynamic range, how values compress the luminance levels, pushing the brightness towards middle gray.
Saturation Adjust is applied after the luminance levels are changed, move it to the right for higher saturation, left for lower.
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.
