Color correction effects and blending modes new in After Effects CS5

After Effects CS5 adds three new effects in the Color Correction effects category:

These new color correction effects are based on Photoshop adjustment layer types. When you import PSD files with these adjustments, they are preserved. Of course, you can also apply the effects directly in After Effects.

There are also two new blending modes in After Effects CS5, Divide and Subtract.

  • Mark Christiansen has a video introduction to these new color correction effects and blending modes on Lynda.com, called “Making use of the updated color effects and blending modes”.
  • Chris and Trish Meyer provide an overview and illustrations demonstrating the new color correction effects and blending modes in their review of After Effects CS5 on the ProVideo Coalition website.
  • Richard Harrington provides a video tutorial on the Creative COW website that demonstrates the use of the Black & White effect.
