ColorSynth is apparently the outcome of a two-year-long collaboration between Codex and superstar Hollywood colorist Yvan Lucas, whose IMDb credits represent visual masterpieces of over 190 films such as Amelie, Seven, The Revenant, Shutter Island, War Horse, The Hateful Eight, and The Irishman.
Lucas aided the Codex team to co-produce a simple yet innovative color grading solution that would incorporate over 35 years of image processing and color grading experience – for all levels of users – and would be compatible with their preferred work environment.
Innovative Colour Grading
Simple at first glance, ColorSynth is an elaborate pre-wired network of color processing nodes totaling more than sixty items arranged in an six-layer stack with several sub-layers.
Floating Point Precision
No matter how complex the grade, ColorSynth renders the results in floating point precision, at a constant speed. From a simple One Light pass to the most complex needs, ColorSynth is easy to learn quickly
Innovative Color Remapping
Core to ColorSynth’s toolset is an elegantly designed collection of innovative colour remapping tools called Colour EQ. Colour remapping tools have been around for decades; however, the mathematics usually result in unwanted colour distortion artifacts that impede their usefulness and usability. ColorSynth’s Colour EQ nodes have been carefully engineered to address these issues and to deliver enhanced possibilities to all users.
Color EQ nodes
The Main EQ provides Hue, Lightness, and Saturation curves that deliver stunning results. The Shading EQ is a specialized tool designed to modify the Hue, Lightness and Saturation of complex conditional colour qualities. The Colour Mixer allows super clean RGB-based remapping of nine colour bands.
