3 Way color corrector using lift/gamma/gain (~shadow, midtone, highlight) Includes controls for highlight and shadow protection as well as input saturation. Pushes colors through hdr pipeline.Its for color grading photographs, to achieve filmic looks/styles while maintaining overall color balance. Based on some lift gamma gain formulas I found around the web. I hope similar to colorista or davinci style color grading.Contains a few overcooked orange/blue summer blockbuster style color pushes, as well as night to day, heat and vintage film look presets. Comments/ Suggestions welcome.
