NEW IN CONTINUUM 2021, the BCC+ Lens Distortion filter corrects for pin-cushioning and barrel distortion of camera lenses. It is also useful for creating the look of a wide angle lens.
Distortion: Pulls the corners of the image in or out. Negative values pull the corners of the image outward while positive values pull the corners of the image inward.
Anamorphic Squeeze: Anamorphic Squeeze corrects for the squeeze found in anamorphic motion picture lenses.
Curvature X and Y: Curvature X and Y correct for non-radial, asymmetric distortions found in anamorphic motion picture lenses.
Note: Anamorphic Squeeze and Curvature X and Y only work once the Distortion parameter has been moved.
Center: Determines the center point for the distortion. There is an on-screen control in the center of the image. By clicking and dragging the on-screen control, the Center can be adjusted.
Working with The Filter
- Apply BCC+ Lens Distortion from the BCC Lens unit.
- Start by adjusting the Distortion control to straighten out any curved lines that should be straight.
Note: Positive Distortion parameters correct Pin-cushioning while negative values correct Barrel distortion.
Depending on the lens that was used, you may need to also adjust the Anamorphic Squeeze and Curvature X and Y parameters.
