- Color Match (under Edit->Merge Clipboard)
- Matches the colors of the selected range of frames to match that of the first frame in the clipboard. This is not really a transition, but requires the clipboard because LiVES plug-in system does not yet support specifying a single image as a script parameter.
The following example shows the result applying the effect to a scene from the movie Blood Tide so that the colors match the image of Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa".
Result of Color Matching
Bear in mind that the filter matches the closest colors available -- regardless where or to what extent they might appear in the images -- and the end result may not always be what one might visually expect. For example in the above, James Earl Jones' skin tone does not match the skin tone of Mona Lisa, because a closer match was available elsewhere in the painting (perhaps in one of the trees in the background).
- Pre-loop code:
- Loop code:
- Post-loop code:
- It is necessary that the "loop clipboard to fit selection" option be enabled for this filter to work.
TODO: This script needs to be re-written as a filter, after image parameters are implemented.
