Codex ColorSynth overview

  • 1Description

Color grade your next project inside Apple's Final Cut Pro X without round-tripping to another software using the Codex ColorSynth for FCPX plug-in. ColorSynth brings a new approach to color grading that combines familiar powerful tools and an innovative UI that can be intuited by pros and novices alike. ColorSynth is tightly integrated into FCPX. It opens like a native plug-in, so no need to deal with additional windows or clashing UIs. Whether trying to achieve a light grade to add a finishing touch or attempting a more ground-up approach to building a unique look, ColorSynth provides you with the tools you need to realize your vision.

Innovative Color Remapping
Core to ColorSynth's toolset is an elegantly designed collection of innovative color remapping tools called Color EQ. Color remapping tools have been around for decades; however, the mathematics can result in unwanted color distortion artifacts that impede their usefulness and usability. ColorSynth's Color EQ nodes have been carefully engineered to address these issues and to deliver enhanced possibilities to all users.
Three Color EQ Nodes
  • 1) The Master EQ works as a parametric audio EQ, with all the necessary permutations of Hue, Lightness, and Saturation remapping.
  • 2) The Shading EQ is a specialized tool designed to modify the hue, lightness and saturation of complex conditional color qualities.
  • 3) The Color Mixer allows super clean RGB-based remapping of nine color bands.
Works with Codex Keys Control Surface
Get extra hands-on control with the Codex Keys control surface. The function buttons, rotary encoders, and LCD screen offer a quick and tactile way to interact with the ColorSynth plug-in.
