The BCC Brightness-Contrast filter allows for precise control over the brightness and contrast of your image.
Included channel selection allows for refined adjustment of the individual red, green, and blue channels, while PixelChooser with built in mocha tracking provide the user with advanced masking and tracking solutions.
Presets and Common Controls
BCC filters come with a library of factory installed presets plus the ability to create your own custom presets and preview them with the BCC FX Browser™.
BCC filters also include common controls that configure global effect preferences and other host-specific effect settings.

PixelChooser/ Mocha Group
Mocha Mask: Click to launch the Mocha custom UI
The BCC PixelChooser provides a way for the user to select which pixels in the filtered source are actually going to be affected by the filter, via the generation of image based mattes, gradient mattes and vector shape masks. Mocha planar tracking and vector shape masking options are included in the PixelChooser, which allows for the generation of motion-tracked mask shapes as a hold-back mask.
