Pixel Chooser

The BCC PixelChooser, fully re-engineered in BCC10 to include mocha planar tracking and more robust and intuitive masking/matting tools, provides numerous techniques for selecting which areas of an image will be affected by a filter.  The PixelChooser has been incorperated into most filters in BCC, but is also available as a stand alone filter.

Pixelchooser creates a matte/mask between filtered and unfiltered pixels allowing far greater control over the design process.  The matte/mask can be defined in numerous ways:

  • mocha planar spline tracking
  • host spline import (in AE)
  • basic geometric shapes/gradients
  • luma/alpha/channel mattes with thresholding
  • robust color keying
