The BCC Magic Sharp filter uses algorithms to enhance image detail while minimizing artifacts associated with traditional sharpening tools.  
The core sharpening algorithm performs up to four passes labelled:
  • Fine
  • Small
  • Medium
  • Course.  

Each pass targets physical details that have wider and wider pixel dimensions with each stage focusing on details of roughly twice the pixel dimensions as the previous stage.  

Additional controls allow fine tuning the amount of sharpening applied to individual color channels and to independent luma ranges along with the ability to suppress noise or grit introduced during the sharpening process.

 

The built in PixelChooser with integrated mocha planar tracking allows for greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.
