[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts – Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the post-production and broadcast markets, recently announced the availability of Nattress Contrast effects. The effects pack is compatible with Final Cut Pro 7 and X, Motion, Premiere Pro and After Effects and contains four filters: Bleach Bypass, Detail Preserve Contrast, Hyper Contrast, and Luma and Saturation Contrast. Because some lenses naturally produce a lower contrast image due to the way light diffuses through the lens elements, adding post-production contrast effects is a great way to increase visual impact and make footage pop. With Nattress Contrast effects, editors can use edge-dependent contrast masking to preserves edges and maintain detail. The filter suite gives users independent control of luma and saturation contrast as well as the ability to digitally recreate the high-contrast film processing Bleach Bypass effect. Nattress Contrast is available now through FxFactory for just 49 USD.
Nattress Contrast Filters Include:
Bleach Bypass produces the high contrast film processing look of the same name. The result is a black and white image imposed over the color image. This effect increases contrast and graininess, while reducing saturation.
Detail Preserve Contrast divides the image into two regions: high detail and low (coarse) detail. Each region has its own contrast control. This filter can be used to create a greater separation between the subject and background.
Hyper Contrast uses edge dependent contrast masking to preserve the integrity of edges, enabling greater contrast adjustments without ruining details of the image. An S-Gamma option adds a film-like gamma curve to mimic the contrast response of film stock.
Luma and Saturation Contrast enables editors to increase or decrease the contrast levels of the luma and saturation independently. This filter is very useful when a simple contrast causes the saturation levels to bloom too much.
