Amazing creative potential
Black White Colorize
There is already a Black & White effect built into Final Cut Pro, but it is nothing like these two exceptionally powerful effects.
The images to the right show the extent of their controls — rather simple.
For SC Black & White, the first three represent levels. There is a “super black” (kind of in invention!)
Brightness and Contrast should be self-explanatory.
Add Noise doesn’t really make the image noisy! It’s a different kind of noise infused into the effect. It’s like another brightness but of a different kind!
There are two styles: Black & White and Filmic.
Filmic applies the effect so that the black and white is blended into the actual colors of the image.
The result of Filmic is reminiscent of the old Ektachrome films from the 50’s and 60’s! (See examples in the video below.)
