A simple, interactive stroke-based workflow to quickly and intuitively perform targeted adjustments
Instead of meticulously drawing exact masks, using inaccurate matte extractions or hand painting frame to frame, regions of interest are isolated by drawing a few simple and loose After Effects open or closed masks.
The Adjust controls manipulate the color of the image in the area defined by a mask. Hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, gamma, red, green, blue, temperature and cyan/magenta can all be adjusted and manipulated.
Individual masks and the areas defined by them can have varying blur values to create interesting depth of field effects.
Colorization is the art of adding color to a monochrome image or movie. The idea of coloring photos and films is not new. Ironically, hand coloring of photographs is as old as photography itself. There exists such examples from 1842 and possibly earlier. Colorization was used in motion pictures in the early 1900´s by the French Company Pathé, where many films were colored by hand. It was also a common practice for filmstrips into the 1930´s. The computerassisted process was first introduced by Canadians Wilson Markle and Brian Hunt in 1970 for adding color to black and white movies.
Diffusion/Glow creates diffusion or glows around selected areas of the image.
Fill Light adds light to shadow areas as if you were adding light at the time of photography.
Areas of the image are isolated with masks and using advanced recoloring algorithms are naturally tinted.
Selective Black and White
Selective black and white effects have become increasingly popular and can be achieved using Power Stroke, even if you are working with objects that contain fine detail, like strands of hair.
Designed with the creative workflow of colorists, film/video editors, graphic designers and artists in mind, Power Stroke introduces a simple, interactive stroke-based workflow to quickly and intuitively perform targeted adjustments. Instead of meticulously drawing exact masks, using inaccurate matte extractions or hand painting frame to frame, regions of interest are isolated by drawing a few simple and loose After Effects open or closed masks. Power Stroke then uses the concepts of luminance-weighted chrominance blending and fast intrinsic distance computations to determine the edges of your target area and adjustments are made only in those areas. Masks can be assigned multiple corrections and effects such as color correction, recoloring or desaturation, colorization of black and white images, blur, fill light for dimly lit image areas and diffusion/glow.
Based on the concepts of luminance-weighted chrominance blending and fast intrinsic distance computations, Power Stroke produces high-quality results at a fraction of the complexity and computational cost of previous techniques. At long last, gestural selection and image adjustment have been combined into one natural, fast and easy process.
