Introducing Amplify Color - Industry Level Color Grading for Unity


#1

Amplify Color is one of the leading choices for accurate and high performing Industry Level Color Grading. Extremely easy to use and to integrate in your project, no coding required. An efficient color grading extension comparable to industry standards used in VFX and Film, future proof and high-performing even on mobile devices.

Any artist can pick up this extension and quickly color grade a Unity scene. Be it via the semi-automated workflow where it actually connects to Photoshop or with other software such as Nuke, DaVinci Resolve or After Effects using the file mode.

Amplify Color Overview

[RIGHT][/RIGHT]
By using LUT’s (Lookup Up Tables), any color profile created can be adjusted and even loaded at run-time allowing users to seamlessly blend between various looks. Users can also use Color Volumes, Dynamic and Depth masking to extend their color based effects.

LUT’s combine and retain all external color alterations; among other effects, Color Balance, Curves, Exposure, Contrast, Saturation and Hue adjustments will all apply to your in-game assets. Users can also take advantage of commercially available LUT packs and apply them directly to Unity Exported Reference Images using the File Mode or Photoshop connection.

There are many types of LUT file formats but Amplify Color will only be able to read compatible Look up Tables in bitmap format(1024x32), as do similar effects in Unity; below is an example of a LUT image.

What can a LUT do for RAW media? Check out the video below by the great team at Vision Colorto find out and be sure to try out their LUT Packs.

Amplify Color Volumes empowers your artists by allowing them to use volumes to efficiently define color correction, effects & events by area. Volumes automatically blend between LUT’s, support Base and Volume LUT mixing and Third-party Effects Volume Blending whilst maintaining volume detection accuracy.

Tonemmaping allows for quick and lightweight adjustments without the need to rely on additional camera components or 3rd-party effects, it also provides a HDR Dithering solution allowing for even more accurate results.

Depth Masking allows you to blend different LUT’s based on depth information by simply adjusting a curve as you would with similar Unity components. Create interesting and dynamic scene moods or simply isolate certain assets based on their depth value such as skyboxes or backgrounds models.

Dynamic Masking provides a quick and easy way to isolate assets by taking advantage of the built-in Unity Culling Mask options



Masking assets is extremely quick to setup and it also works great with 2D Games, be sure to check the Project Samples in the Manual Page; section 6 – Dynamic & Depth Masks.

Ace Ferrara And The Dino Menace is a space combat simulation game featuring mystery, romance, cat-augmentation, space-faring dinosaurs and a heartfelt appreciation for 80s sci-fi cartoons. Developed by Philipp Seifried, the game will launch on iOS in early 2014, with releases on other platforms (Android, PC, Mac) planned later in the year.

//youtu.be/F-Af4JUQqRI

An awesome looking game, amplified by our color grading technology and developed entirely by one person, Philip did all the code, graphics, music/sfx, writing, cat-petting and PR. We also suspect he taught dinosaurs how to pilot spaceships and for one we welcome our new reptilian overlords.

For anyone experiencing update issues with the Unity Asset Store service, we are happy to announce that a fix has been accepted and should be available to everyone.

Our latest Amplify Color and Motion update fixes potential script disconnection issues when upgrading from older versions and the dreaded stuck in the “Updating Status” of the Asset Store Unity Tab. We’ve corrected our deployment process to ensure this never happens again.

If you run into unexpected update issues it’s probably best to remove the older version before importing the new package. Should you need dedicated support we would be happy to help via support@amplify.pt.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

A new major Amplify Color update is now available, directly trough the Asset Store or our own website. We would like to start by thanking you all for your patience when it comes to our occasionally slower iteration rate, we might seem silent but we are hard at work in the background with developers such as yourself; always exploring new features and improvement or providing the kind of premium support that you can always expect from us.

Among other improvements in version 1.5.1 we introduce a lightweight Filmic Tonemapping option, appropriate HDR Dithering & adjustable Exposure. It’s now possible to use Depth-based Masks via a curve controller and we also added 2D Collider support. By working closely with a few select developers we also found a critical workaround for a HW Clamping related issue plaguing the iPhone5s/iPAdAir, we also improved color space conversion, shader optimization and error handling in Unity 5.

Be sure to visit our blog for the full change list, try it today!

Stay tuned, we are working on innovative tools that will greatly improve your workflow and ease of use.
