Lyric High Saturation Matte

High Saturation Matte

The Lyric High Saturation Matte produces a matte that selects the highly-saturated areas in the scene. You can can control the saturation threshold and rolloff.

This matte is most commonlyused as a filter mask, allowing color-correction to be applied just to the high-saturation areas of a scene, for example to flatten saturation without bleeding out the low-saturation areas completely.

The Lyric High Saturation Matte filter includes a set of matte and output controls that are common across all Lyric matte filters. For a detailed description of these controls, please see the Matte Common Controls documentation.

For background information on mattes and their uses in Final Cut, please refer to the Lyric Matte Primer.


The Saturation Threshold allows the matte cut-off point to be adjusted to encompass more-or-less saturation regions. Higher values selects a greater range of saturation. Saturation Rolloff controls the smoothness of the threshold.

The Matte Control and Output sections are common controls that are documented on the Matte Common Controls page.
