Powerful New Keyer
A powerful, easy-to-use Keyer allows you to adjust individual colors or ranges of colors. Create color keys intuitively with a direct sampling interface. Soften, choke or invert the matte, and use it in conjunction with Power Masks for ultimate control.
8 HSL Channels
Getting memory colors looking right is crucial. You have three color adjustment controls for changing Hue, Saturation and Luminance across eight color ranges. Make your skies look blue and get your talents' skin just right.
Two Kinds of Pop
The Pop slider has two very cool uses. Give your image more visual 'pop' by increasing the sharpness. Alternately, set Pop to negative values to smooth and clean up skin tones while keeping important detail.
Intelligently rebuilds blown-out highlight detail. Now you can save shots by hiding problems like blown-out areas in a sky or on an actor's face.
Two Power Masks
Two rectangular or elliptical shaped masks can qualify an area so its ready for a specific color change. Use them separately, together or with the Keyer for powerful effects. For example, correct the fleshtones of two actors in a single pass.
For precision control and smooth, film-like contrast adjustments. Provides a quick way to get a film-like contrast in the shot. Get a master curves contrast as well as individual RGB channel controls.
A quick way to correct white balance in your image. Auto-Balance now does black and white balancing with one click to better handle mixed lighting situations.
This switch is a quick way to flip the shot before color correction. Makes it simple to deal with some brands of 35mm adaptors used on video cameras, like the Panasonic HVX200 and Sony EX-1, which capture the image upside-down.
Mixing or Soloing of Stages
Set how much a stage contributes to the overall correction. Mix amount determines the interplay between the original image and a specific stage, giving you an ultimate refinement technique. The Bypass switch similarly turns off all the controls in that state.
GPU Accelerated & CPU Supported
Render engine flexibility lets you use Colorista II wherever and whenever you want. As with other film making tools, the controls work in floating point color and use the GPU to accelerate playback AND final rendering of results. This feature greatly speeds the output process. Beefy GPU-equipped workstations will provide the best render speed but laptops or CPU-only render farms can also run Colorista II with confidence.
Move Between Multiple Hosts
Use the same color correction tool fluidly between your favorite editors. Colorista II ships as a native plug-in for these major host applications: Final Cut Pro, After Effects and Premiere Pro.
