NEW IN CONTINUUM 2021 The BCC+ Color Infrared filter simulates infrared filters used in conjunction with infrared sensitive film or sensors to produce very interesting false-color images with a dreamlike or sometimes lurid appearance.
Presets and the FX Editor
To select from a selection of factory installed and user-generated presets, open the FX Editor interface and pick one from the Presets window.
Magenta: Adjusts the amount of magenta in the image.
Blue: Adjusts the amount of blue in the image.
Hue: Adjusts the hue in any non-blue areas of the image.
Contrast: Adjusts the overall contrast of the image.
PixelChooser: The BCC PixelChooser provides simple, built-in masking of the effect result. The PixelChooser is generally used to select a portion of the image and restrict an effect to just the selected area while maintaining the original image content in unselected regions. The selection can be based on geometric shapes or on the image’s luma/color properties.
