Nattress Releases First FxFactory-based AE and FCP Filters
Posted Jan 25, 2012

Noise Industries' latest partnership with Nattress Productions brings a finer degree of image control to the editor through Levels and Curves, a filter pack that allows users to color grade in film-log space. The new curve-based color adjustment plug-in, available now on FxFactory 3, is compatible with Final Cut Pro® 6, 7 and X; Motion 3, 4 and 5; and Adobe® After Effects® CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5. Offered at 29 USD, users can download a free trial version of Nattress Levels and Curves from http://www.nattress.com/?q=LevelsCurves.

Nattress Levels and Curves feature highlights include:

  • Film-Log Space – Editors have all the benefits of fine control over the tones in an image and film-like contrast handling.
  • On-Screen Curve Display – The on-screen curve display helps editors fine-tune curve and/or level adjustments. The curve display can easily be turned off when footage adjustment is completed.
  • Library of Presets – Users can quickly apply popular level corrections, or create and save custom presets to use again and again. 
  • Levels – The Black and White level inputs and outputs can be easily set, plus gamma curve control allows for fast and functional levels control.
  • Curves RGB – Individual control over the RGB channels in an image is made simple. The control set is duplicated for each channel allowing for precise control over image tones and colors.
  • Curves Luma – Users can work on the luma component of an image only. When a user adjusts luma curves, it only alters how bright or dark the tones of the image appear; color and saturation are not affected.
  • Curves - Curves work in RGB space equally across all three channels. As contrast increases, so does the perception of image saturation.
