[ Via Apple.com ] We've all seen it: footage shot in bright sunshine, but underexposed and filtered to look like moonlight. Now you can get the same effect, only better, with more control.

By changing the lightness/darkness of the filter color you change the brightness of the scene. Select a darker color and the scene is darker. Select a more saturated color and your moonlight color is more saturated. Human vision at night is desaturated depending on the amount of visible light, so you may want to desaturate the original scene before adding the moonlight color. Adjusting the saturation

That is SO cool.. I just tried it on some footage from a tropical beach in mid-day sun and it looks like it was captured late evening, after the sun went down. Without this plugin you'd have to tweak color settings for ever.

The two other filter modes included are spiffy too, all free. 5 stars in every category. Good job.

[ Via Apple.com ] We've all seen it: footage shot in bright sunshine, but underexposed and filtered to look like moonlight. Now you can get the same effect, only better, with more control.

By changing the lightness/darkness of the filter color you change the brightness of the scene. Select a darker color and the scene is darker. Select a more saturated color and your moonlight color is more saturated. Human vision at night is desaturated depending on the amount of visible light, so you may want to desaturate the original scene before adding the moonlight color. Adjusting the saturation slider removes the original colors in the scene for a more natural look.

Night Vision mode uses the red channel to create a B/W image and applies a green filter to simulate night vision scopes.

Infra-Red mode uses the red channel to produce a B/W image. Because the image is made from light in the red spectrum, it is similar to infra-red photography. Of course your video camera likely does not record true infra-red energy, so this is only a simulation. Use Infra-Red mode in combination with Chromatic Glow for greater effect.

Features:
  • Control the color of the moonlight.
  • Control desaturation.
  • Choose “Night Vision” to simulate a night vision scope.
  • Choose “Infra-Red” to simulate using infra-red B/W film.
