BIG BOX OF TRICKS
 

Extra Touches: G Beauty

Use G Beauty to add a classic “beauty” glow to your footage, reminiscent of 1940’s films. This filter can also be used to create lovely tonalities in your video. Experiment with the different Modes to find a look that suits your footage.

Control
Settings
Notes
Process as... RGB
Y’CbCr
Allows you to set the filter to work in RGB or Y’CbCr colour space. RGB generally works well, but Y’CbCr can produce some interesting results.
Preserve Luma on
off
Turning Preserve Luma on makes the filter only affect the colours in the image, not the brightness.
Blur Type Gaussian
Box
Both of these blurs have subtly different effects on the footage. In RGB space, the Gaussian blur desaturates the colours slightly more than the box blur and has a more diffuse feel to its blur while maintaining detail. In Y’CbCr space, the Box blur gives your footage a slightly cooler feel, while the Gaussian blur shifts the colours to the warmer tones in your image
Amount 0 to 100 Controls the intensity of the blur, and thus the overall ‘beauty’ effect.
Gaussian Radius 0 to 100 This control modifies the blur only when Blur Type is set to Gaussian. The larger the radius, the larger the area used to calculate the Gaussian blur.
Box Iterations 1 to 10 This control modifies the blur only when the Blur Type is set to Box. The more iterations, the blurrier the image becomes, Note this effect is quite subtle if Preserve Luma is set to on.
Mode Normal
Multiply
Screen
Overlay
Lighten
Darken
Add
Blur
Selects how the effect is combined with the original footage.
Normal: the effect replaces original.
Multiply: combination results in the final image being darker.
Screen: the opposite of multiply, brighter image. Usually gives the best result.
Overlay: makes brights brighter and darks darker.***
Lighten: makes brights brighter***
Darken: Makes darks darker.***
Add: another way of brighting the brights.
Blur: This is for diagnostics purposes. It shows the blurred image before being processed by the other modes. This is useful for getting a consistent look across diverse shots.
***RGB Mode only.
Use Levels on
off
Setting this control to on allows you to adjust the blurred image (as viewed with Mode set to Blur), which in turn modifies the finally ‘beauty’ look. The effects of Levels is muted if Preserve Luma is set to on.
White Level 0 to 255 Lowering White Level will brighten image
Black Level 0 to 255 Raising Black Level will darken image
White Output 0 to 255 Lowering White Output will make the whole image dimmer by limiting the maximum brightness of the image
Black Output 0 to 255 Raising Black Output will make the dark areas of the image brighter, making the image look foggy
