Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: StaticColorMask

Grain: StaticColorMask

In the S_GrainMask Plugin.

Adds color and/or monochrome random noise of given amplitudes to areas of the source clip specified by the Mask input. There is no coherency of the grain between pixels, so the resulting look will vary with different output resolutions.


Source: The clip to be processed.

Mask: Scales the amplitude of the applied effect. For black areas of Mask, the Source remains unchanged, for gray areas the effect is reduced. Only the red channel of this input is used. The mask can optionally be inverted using Invert Mask parameter.


Load Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Browser to browse all available presets for this effect.

Save Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Save dialog to save a preset for this effect.

Bw Amplitude: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
The amplitude of the black and white static to include.

Color Amp: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater.
The amplitude of the color static to include.

Color Scale: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
Scales the color of the static by this value. The static will include both positive and negative values of this color.

Invert Mask: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, inverts the mask input so the effect is applied to areas where the Mask is black instead of white.



Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Brings up the Mocha window for tracking footage and generating masks.

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mocha Mask by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges or quantization artifacts of the mask, and smooth out the time displacements.

Mocha Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

Invert Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, the black and white of the Mocha Mask are inverted before applying the effect.

Show Mocha Only: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Bypass the effect and show the Mocha Mask itself.

Bypass Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Ignore the Mocha Mask and apply the effect to the entire source clip.

Combine Masks: Popup menu,  Default: Union .
Determines how to combine the Mocha Mask and Input Mask when both are supplied to the effect.
Union: Uses the area covered by both masks together.
Intersect: Uses the area that overlaps between the two masks.
Mocha Only: Ignore the Input Mask and only use the Mocha Mask.
