NEW IN CONTINUUM 2021, the BCC Color Paste filter takes the luminance values of the foreground image and pastes it as a color over the background.
Opacity: Sets the opacity of the foreground element.
Color: The Color parameter sets the color of the foreground image through the use of a standard eyedropper or color picker. The default color is white.
A Note for Adobe Premiere Users:
- Color Paste requires a minimum of Premiere Pro CC. In addition, the Sequence Settings > Composite in Linear Color preference needs to be disabled for Color Paste to composite correctly.
A Note for Nuke Users:
- Input Is Premultiplied. In Nuke, the Color Paste filter needs to know if the input image is premultiplied. Enable if premultiplied.
- In Nuke, Color Paste premultiplies the output by default.
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.

Working with The Filter
- Apply BCC+ Color Paste from the Key and Blend unit
- In After Effects / Final Cut Pro / Motion / Premiere Pro:
- Stack your foreground clip (what you want to color paste) above a background layer/track.
- Apply Color Paste to the foreground layer/track.
- In OFX Hosts such as Nuke and Resolve
- For node based hosts, apply Color Paste to a RGB clip and then use a Composite or Merge node to composite the result.
- For layer-based hosts such as Vegas, stack your foreground clip (what you want to color paste) above a background layer/track. Then, apply Color Paste to the top foreground layer/track.
- Adjust the Opacity and Color to achieve the desired effect.
Note: Color Paste requires a minimum of Premiere Pro CC. In addition, the Sequence Settings > Composite in Linear Color preference needs to be disabled for Color Paste to composite correctly.
