Example text

The difference is that since this node has a color wheel for each of the Gain/Gamma/Lift components, its easier to manage color-based grading. The same process in the RGB Curves node would be a bit complicated since curves have to be shaped separately for R, G, and B. However, having a curve-based control in the RGB Curves node provides more precision in grading in comparison to the Color Balance node. [ 42 ] Chapter 4 The Color Balance and RGB Curves nodes can be used in combination to make flows to have the desired grading control.

Node influence will be 100 percent at value 1. The RGB Curves node The RGB Curves node provides a Bezier-curve-based control for image grading. This curve represents an input (x axis) versus output (y axis) plot. Modifying this curve remaps the output range, thereby providing a grading effect. This node also provides controls to set up black and white levels for the input image. A flat image that has all pixel values in the midtones range can be graded to redistribute the pixel values to occupy the complete range of shadows, midtones, and highlights.

Both pixels hues are blended, and the value and saturation of the base image are combined with the blended hue and converted to RGB. Use Alpha The Use Alpha button of the Mix node instructs the Mix node to use the Alpha channel available in the foreground image. Based on the grayscale information in the alpha channel, the foreground pixels are made transparent to view the background image. The effect of the selected blending mode is thus seen only in the nontransparent foreground pixels. The Alpha channel of the output image is not affected by this option.
