55mm 7.0 is the definitive set of digital optical filters meant to simulate popular glass camera filters, specialized lenses, optical lab processes, film grain, exacting color correction as well as natural light and photographic effects--all in a controlled digital environment. The set of plug-ins includes: Black and White, Black Mist, Bleach Bypass, Blur, Center Spot, Chromatic Aberration, Color Compensating, Color Conversion, Color Correct, Color Grad, Color Infrared, Color Spot, Cool Mist, Cross Processing, Day for Night, Defog, Defringe, Depth of Field, Diffusion, Double Fog, Dual Grad, Edge Glow, Enhancing, Faux Film, Flashing, Fluorescent, Fog, F-Stop, GamColor Gels, Gels, Glow, Gold Reflector, Grain, Halo, Infrared, Kelvin, Lens Distortion, Light, Light Balancing, Low Contrast, Mist, Mono Tint, ND Grad, Night Vision, Old Photo, Overexpose, Ozone, Pencil, Photographic Filters, Polarizer, Printer Points, Rack Focus, Radial Exposure, ReLight, Rosco Gels, Selective Color Correct, Selective Saturation, Silver Reflector, Skin Smoother, Soft Effects, Split Field, Split Tone, Star, Streaks, Strip Grad, Sunset/Twilight, Telecine, Temperature, Three Strip, Tint, Two Strip, Ultra Contrast, Vari-Star, Vignette, Warm/Cool, Warm Black Mist, Warm Mist, Warm Soft Effects and X-Ray.
55mm 7.0 adds 12 new filters as well as tuning existing filter algorithms. Chromatic Aberration, Color Infrared, Cool Mist, Defringe, Double Fog, Edge Glow, Old Photo, Pencil, Split Tone, X-Ray, and the new Two Strip and Three Strip filters are just some of the highlights of 55mm 7.0. The Three Strip and Two Strip plug-ins were created under the direction of Academy Award Winning Visual Effects Supervisor Rob Legato, who used the process to great effect in The Aviator. The Technicolor® Two Strip process was the first stab at producing color motion pictures and consisted of simultaneously photographing two black and white images using red and green filters. This look creates an odd but pleasing hand-painted look where faces appear normal and green takes on a blue-green quality, while the sky and all things blue appear cyan.
