Color Correction

Color Correction is responsible for changing the colors of the scene image. It will help to eliminate any color imbalances or create new color effects.

This post process has 4 parameters: Gamma, Brightness, Contrast and Saturation.

If your picture seems faded to you, it can be corrected by color correction parameters. They will make your picture more impressive and spectacular.


Gamma is responsible for color correction of monitor/screen brightness.

The Gamma parameter can be compared to how we perceive colors in different places. For example, when we go outside from a dark room, at first everything seems bright outside. It even may hurt our eyes due to the bright light.

And when we go back into the room, everything around us will seem much darker than everything really is. This happens because our eyes change their sensitivity to light. Gamma imitates this perception of color and light.

When we increase the Gamma parameter, our picture becomes lighter. Accordingly, when we reduce this parameter, our picture becomes darker.


Using the Brightness parameter, you can adjust the brightness of the colors in the Scene. The higher the brightness, the brighter the colors in the Scene.

When Brightness is 0, this is the normal brightness, which we have determined using our light sources in the Scene.

If Brightness is 100%, it means that we have increased the brightness by 2 times.

The brightness can be changed up to 400%, which is the maximum brightness value.

If we reduce the brightness, then our picture will begin to darken. If we reduce the brightness by 2 times, then the scene will be completely dark.

Application: Using the Brightness parameter, you can create various appearances of the Main Character in the Scene.


The Contrast setting adjusts the contrast between dark and light areas in the Scene. The more it is, the greater the contrast between the brightest and darkest areas of the image. Bright colors become even brighter, dark ones even darker.

The Contrast value can be increased up to 400%. In this case, the brightest colors will be visible, and everything that is more or less gray will be dark.

If we reduce contrast by 2 times (to -100%%), the whole Scene will be gray (by mixing the darkest and the lightest colors, we will get gray).


Saturation adjusts the color richness/intensity of the image.

If we increase Saturation to 100%, the colors of the scene become more juicy. If we increase this parameter to 200%, the colors become even more saturated.

At a Saturation value of 400%, all colors will strive for maximum saturation.

If we reduce the Saturation by 2 times (to -100%), we will get a completely gray picture.

When we begin to reduce the saturation of the image to - 200% and below, various mathematical changes begin to occur. Due to them, it is possible to get new effects without using other parameters and tools.

By combining the Color correction settings, you can get your own picture. It all depends on your desire.
