Color Correction

WonderLookPro is providing various color correction methods. User can create his/her own color by using tone curve, ASC-CDL, vector color or other interface. WonderLookPro also provides half automatic color correction methods, like gray balancing or matching of specific color.

Explanation

Tone Curve

Tone Curve generation using upto 32 points

惻You can choose the shape of default curve from straight (Grading Space mode), or System Tone Curve(System Tone mode).

惻You can choose color selection for the tone curve. RGB mode control the curve for RGB simultaneously. You can select R,G and B for individual tone control.

惻You can edit numbers directly.

惻You can paste the table edited by spread sheet like Excel.

惻RGB simultaneous curve can be mixed with Y component curve. If you increase the ratio of Y component, the change of saturation will be reduced.

Simple

"Simple" is the easiest  to control method.

惻Color Balance can be adjusted by big color wheel.

惻You can change color temperature by slider.

惻Saturation control by slider.

惻Tone control slider make image more harder or softer while keeping the brightness at 18% gray.

惻Exposure control change the brightness of the image. It calculates in linear color space so the result was very close to the change of actual camera iris.

惻Knee control adjusts the roll off level around highlight. You can change the starting point of the roll off by knee position control.

SOP/LGG

ASC-CDL conrtol


LGG: Lift(shadowļ¼‰ć€Gamma(middleļ¼‰ć€Gain(highlightļ¼‰control

SOP: Offset, Slope, Gamma control. This is exactly the same parameter with ASC-CDL definition, but it is not instinctive control so we prepare LGG mode.


Saturation control is common for both mode.

Vector

Vector color control


12 colors are located in hue direction, which can control saturation, hue and brightness for each color region.


You can device the target of the control into low saturation/ high saturation, and/or low brightness/ high brightness.



CCU

CCU emulation


It is emulated conrol of Camera Control Unit.

惻Pedestal: control of gamma around shadow

惻Flare : amount of flare

惻Gamma: entire gamma contorl

惻Red/Blue(OverAll) : offset control of red or blue

惻Red/Blue(Black) : offset control of red or blue in shadow region

惻Knee : Highlight roll off control

惻Exposure : Emulation of iris control

惻Balance : the parameters to ajudst white ballance

惻Saturation : saturation control


Half automated color correction:Neutralize and Color Matching

WonderLooPro provide you the simple method to make white ballance of the image, or matching of the specific color to another by picking the soruce and target color. If you selected proper IDT, these transform will be made in the device independent scene linear color space, so the result will be very accurate like on camera correction.


Following screen shot is the example of mis white ballanced one, daylight shot with 3200K white ballance on camera. Very bluish ballance image and  red/green/blue wave form shift shows that it is not proper white ballance. The ACES value in the yellow triangle is the average ACES value of red rectangle in the image, 18% gray patch.


R = 0.471

G = 0.612

B = 0.943


The numbers also says white ballance was shifted toward blue.



You can just push "Neutralize" button to create white ballance parameter and apply it automatically. The image and WaveFrom shows the white ballance was properly done and the ACES value of 18% gray are all 0.612 which means neutral.



This is how simple and accurate WonderLookPro's half automatic white ballance works.
