How to desaturate your layers


Below is an example for adjusting the saturation level of layers.  This example talks about saturation but the adjustment can be applied on any of the below arguments.

Input Level Adjust (ILA)

This command allows for adjustment of brightness, hue, contrast, saturation, and gamma on any layer in the system. 


Command: ILA 

Argument 1: Brightness (0.0 - 2.0)

Argument 2: Contrast (0.0 - 2.5)

Argument 3: Hue (-180 - 180)

Argument 4: Saturation ( 0.0 - 2.0) 

Argument 5*: Gamma (0.0 - 3.0) - Note: value must be provided using decimal notation

Argument 5 ~ XX: Layer(s) to apply settings to

 

To Desaturate layers 3, 4 and 5.

 

ILA 1 1 0 0 4 5 6

 

ILA                                  Command

Argument 1-      1            Brightness value

Argument 2-      1            Contrast

Argument 3-      0            Hue

Argument 4-      0            Saturation(default value is 1)

Argument 5-      4,5,6     Layers(Layers are offset by one.  0, 1 is preview/program for layer numbers.  Layer 1 is a 2, layer 2 is a 3, etc.)

 

Argument 5* option-Gamma value can be bypassed if you are not adjusting


Create a Desaturation Network Function Key-

 

 

Embedded the  Function key in the cue of the desired Command key.

 

Network commands require a 10 bit header-

 


Header- 6 bit< spyder >followed by 4 nulls. Example- spyder\x00\x00\x00\x00ILA 1 1 0 0 4 5 6

spyder\x00\x00\x00\x00ILA 1 1 0 0 4 5 6

 

Command-

XXX_(must have space(Argument delimiter) between Command and Argument)

 

Argument(s)-

X_X_X (Must have space between argument strings)

 

Layer ID’s start with 2, as Layer ID 0 and 1 are used for 2 background layers of the system

Some commands display their last Argument as ~XX, This command allows the last Argument field to be repeated, allow for multiples of the last argument to be specified with a single command.
