Lyric Vibrance is a color-correction filter that applies a controlled color lift to the source video to balance the saturation levels throughout the image and give it more vibrance. The width and rolloff of the color lift can be controlled and a fleshtone preserve feature is provided that prevents unwanted shifts in skin colors.
Notice in the examples above that low-saturation areas in the originals have been improved without blowing out the existing well-saturated colors. The fleshtone preserve feature has also been enabled in the left example, keeping the low-saturation face skin in control while surrounding areas have had substantial color boost.
The Lyric Vibrance 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 controls the level of color lift.
The Chroma Width and Chroma Falloff sliders control the areas of color lift. High Chroma Width values lift more of the colors in the scene.
Checking Preserve Fleshtones will mask out skin tone areas in the scene and prevent them from being adjusted. Skin tones tend to have relatively low saturation and so would otherwise be lifted during the balancing operation.
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.
