Magic Bullet Mojo II

Overview

Below are descriptors for each of the different parameters within Mojo II:

My Footage Is: Applies a contrast curve to the footage to bring out its full tonal range. Shooting Flat or LOG footage stores important color information that's enhanced by the S-Curve, LUT, or built in "My Footage Is" adjustments. If you are using a camera that shoots in LOG C, use the LOG Pro for best results.

Presets: Automatically adjusts all of the parameters in Mojo to one of our built in presets. These serve as great starting points to explore the potential of Mojo.

Mojo: Boosts the contrast, warms the highlights, and cools the shadows while preserving skin tones.

Mojo Tint: Adjusts the hue of the coloring done by the Mojo parameter. Positive values result in cooler colors (royal blue, teal, emerald green), negative values result in or warmer colors (crimson, yellow, orange)

Punch It: Adjusts the contrast of the shadows while preserving skin tones as best it can. Higher values push shadows further towards black, while lower values result in brighter shadows. 

Bleach It: Varies the overall color saturation. The higher the numbers, the more bleach is added and saturation is removed from the colors; negative values result in less bleach and higher saturation.

Fade It: Lifts the brightness of the rich black tones of the image to give it a faded look.

Blue Squeeze: Compresses the blue tones to be more uniform in hue. This compression or 'squeezing'  allows for greater control of the overall color palette of the image. Pairs especially well with the Tint control.

Skin Squeeze: Often skin tones are too varied in color, and sometimes people's skin can take on a blotchy appearance. Skin Squeeze compresses the skin tones to be more uniform in hue. This compression or 'squeezing' reduces blotchiness, and unifies uneven complexions, which has the effect of flattening out skin tones.

Vignette it: Adds a subtle vignette that mimics a real-world lens vignette.

Corrections

Exposure : A correction control that adjusts the overall exposure of the image.

Cool/Warm: A correction control that adjusts the overall color temperature of the image. Positive values make the image more orange and negative values make the image more blue.

Green/Magenta: A correction control that adjusts the overall tint of the image. Positive values make the image more magenta and negative values make the image more green.

Skin Yellow/Pink: A correction control that targets a range of hues that skin usually falls into. If the subject's skin is just a bit too yellow or pink, this slider will make corrections without adjusting the overall tint of the image.  Positive values make skin pinker, while negative values make skin yellower.

Show Skin Overlay:  Toggling this control on will display a grid over any part of the footage where the hue is in a correct range for Skin tone. If a unified grid is shown across the subject's skin, the color grade is considered optimized. While the overlay will display in the preview, it will not appear in any final renders.

Strength: Controls the overall strength of the Mojo Tool.
