The complete color grading with only one plugin

You want a big budget look for your videos and photos? You want to work in your familiar environment and not use different tools for video and image editing? Are you tired of masking color areas and round-tripping through different programs? Would you rather use an easy-to-learn tool that lets you create stunning and professional looks in no time? Then Warping Wheels is everything you need for your color grading. You can use the plugin in Premiere, After Effects and Final Cut Pro X as well as in Photoshop to create high-end looks in no time, even without years of color grading experience, just by pressing a button.

An endless source of inspiration

Developing new looks is super fun, but also takes a lot of time and requires at least advanced knowledge. The Warping Wheels Look Generator kills two birds with one stone. Just roll the dice until you find the right look for your image. Once you have found it, you can further optimize it with the intuitive functions.

The (R)evulution of Color Wheels

Warping Wheels represent a new generation of color wheels: To optimally adapt the look to your image material, you can not only fine-tune the range of influence of the color wheels in terms of tonal value and spectrum, but also separately control the saturation for different brightness ranges.

Protect and edit skin tones

Have you created a great look, but compromised your skin tones in the process? With the Skin Tone Wheel, you'll always have skin tones under control. With full customization options, you'll save yourself complicated masking via secondaries and a lot of time.

Dedicated color wheels for sky and plant green

Sky blue and plant green often dominate outdoor scenes, and their color processing is often crucial to the look of your footage. That's why we've dedicated color wheels to these two color areas in Warping Wheels. This way you can instantly give your image a different mood.

The Film Contrast Wheel - adds another dimension to the contrast control

The Warping Wheels Film Contrast Wheel is unlike any other contrast control. Since these simply make an image look dull after decreasing the contrast, or often create a rather harsh contrast when increasing it. With the Film Contrast wheel, you create a particularly harmonious contrast and can choose from a range reminiscent of the look and feel of analog film to modern high-end productions.

Toolbar with cross-host presets & LUT export

The Toolbar lets you conveniently save your settings as a preset. For example, if you save a preset in Photoshop, you can use it in Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut Pro X, or vice versa. In addition, you can export your look as a LUT via the toolbar, make a before/after comparison or reset the whole plugin at the push of a button.

Color Warp Technology - Bend the Color Space

The name Warping Wheels refers to the Color-Warp technology invented by Picture Instruments. With Color-Warp technology, colors can be bent very harmoniously in the color space. This reduces compression artifacts such as blocking or banding artifacts. Since the trend, especially through smartphone photos and videos as well as mini-gimbals and photo drones, is moving more and more towards highly compressed image material, we consider it an important step to design our algorithms in such a way that they amplify the sometimes unavoidable compression artifacts as little as possible in post-processing.
