SC Infrared Effect - based on the popular Photoshop effect

This is a super simple effect. There are three parameters  — one to offset the “color center”, one to adjust the saturation and a checkbox to switch to Black & White.

Typically, color center should tend more to the right, but it will depend on the lighting of the original.

That’s it!
Since Motion does not contain the full color effect toolkit of Photoshop or Affinity Photo, some adjustments/adaptations were made to the methods used in the photo editing apps.
