Levels and Curves: G Levels

This filter is the essentials levels control: choice of RGB or Y'CrCb colour space; onscreen curves display; white and black levels and outputs; gamma control; black and white curves controls; output clipping; and curve dithering control (to reduce banding artifacts).

Notes
Colour Space RGB
Y’CbCr
Most video is natively in the Y’CbCr space (commonly and incorrectly known as “YUV”). By allowing the selection of Y’CbCr or RGB, you can create a different visual effect. When working in Y’CbCr, only Y’ level is affected, preserving colour saturation. In RGB, R, G and B are affected, creating changes in both the lightness / darkness of the image and it’s saturation.
Show Curves on
off
By turning this control on, a graph will appear showing you how the G Levels plugin is affecting your image. This graph does not render onto your video.
White Level 0 to 255 Lowering White Level will brighten image.
Black Level 0 to 255 Raising Black Level will darken image.
Gamma Order Gamma First
Gamma Second
This sets whether the gamma adjustment is calculated before or after the levels are adjusted.
Gamma 0.1 to 10 Controls the amount of gamma curve adjustment.
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.
White Curve -100% to 100% Positive values bend the bright part of the curve upwards, brightening highlights and negative values bend it downwards dimming highlights.
Black Curve -100% to 100% Positive values bend the dark part of the curve upwards, brightening shadows and negative values bend it downwards darkening shadows.
Clip Output Levels on
off
By turning Clip Output Levels OFF, values beyond the end of the curve will be set to the extremes, and when Clip Output Levels is ON, values will remain constant.
Dither? on
off
Adds a small amount of noise to reduce any banding artifacts.
Dither Amount 1 to 10 Controls the amount of noise that gets added if Dither? is set to on.
