・Cartoon Converts the image into a cartoon.

・Detail Detail presents a new technique for performing selective sharpening, detail enhancement and edge aware smoothing.
・Develop Provides useful developing controls for globally adjusting the color and tonal scale of your images.
・Grunge Adds film dirt, hair, scratches, stains, splotches, vignetting and grain as well as gate weave and flicker on video/film hosts--all to make your pristine image look like damaged film.
・Harris Shutter Invented by Robert S. “Bob” Harris of Kodak, the Harris Shutter was originally a strip device with three color filters used for making color photographs with the different primary color layers exposed in separate time intervals in succession. Our digital version of the Harris Shutter uses separate images for the red, green and blue channels. In the case of a time interval between images used for the red, green and blue channels, this will generate a rainbow of color around any object that moves within the frame.
・Pastel Converts the image into pastel artwork.
・Pearlescent® / Black Pearlescent® Creates a subtle new look with a slight softening of contrast and a luxurious pearlescent halo around highlights. This filter aids cinematographers in taking the edge off the image from modern lenses and cameras, especially with 4K acquisition sensors.
・Black Pearlescent® offers all the benefits of the Pearlescent® filter in a more subtle form. Highlight flares are controlled and contrast is lowered for a more delicate effect.
・Radial Tint Tints the image using multi-color, radially graduated filters.
・Satin® / Black Satin® Designed with modern digital lenses and camera sensors specifically in mind to enhance the natural beauty of talent with minimal signs of filtration. This filter gently adds a minimal flare to highlights and reduces contrast while suppressing facial blemishes and wrinkles.
・Black Satin® offers all the benefits of the Satin® filter in a more subtle form. This filter gently controls highlights, reduces contrast and adds a grittier look than regular satin filters, while suppressing facial blemishes and wrinkles.
・Tone Adjust approximates the appearance of high dynamic range images by adjusting the tonal values. Specifically, detail is recovered.
