G Posterise is an improvement on the standard posterise type effects, which shift the video tones into discreet steps or bands, because it has the control Softness, which enables you to blend the transition between bands of colours. G Posterise also has the fantastic feature of adding an outline, if desired, on the transitions between the steps of the posterise effect. This can be used to make the video look like a cartoon. Due to the advanced nature of G Posterise, a Show Mapping option draws a graph on screen to show the brightness steps and the softness adjustment for diagnostic purposes.
Selects whether the posterisation is applied to the luma of the video, or to the RGB channels.
1 to 255
The number of individual steps that make up the posterisation effect.
0 to 100
Controls the blending of the original image with the posterised image. Zero is no posterised and 100% is the full effect.
-1 to 1
Moves the steps to the left or right in the mapping graph - changes the positioning of the tonal bands.
0 to 2
Moves the steps higher or lower, increasing or decreasing the brightness of the effect.
0 to 200
Sets the amount of pre-blur on the effect which make the results smoother - useful for when producing a cartoon effect to reduce the detail.
0 to 100
Softens the edges of the posterisation steps.
Force Black and White
Makes the effect black and white.
Turns on the cartoon outline.
0 to 255
Sets the threshold for the edge detection algorithms that draw the outline.
0 to 100
Sets the percentage opacity of the outline.
Sets the colour of the outline.
Sets the outline to be drawn on the top edges of the detected regions, relative to the darker region.
Sets the outline to be drawn on the right edges of the detected regions, relative to the darker region.
Sets the outline to be drawn on the bottom edges of the detected regions, relative to the darker region.
Sets the outline to be drawn on the left edges of the detected regions, relative to the darker region.
Displays a graph that helps tweak the effect, especially the steps, offset, brightness and softness settings.
