  • Missing Unmult effect

    Posted by Max Haller on May 12, 2023 at 2:26 pm

    Hey guys I often get projects with shows graphics packages and I’m usually missing this Unmult effect. I have unmult from RG that I usually just replace it with. But it is annoying, does anyone happen to know where i can find this? Or is there a built in way to replace effects that i dont know about? I think it’s an older effect possibly but it doesn’t have any info when i open it up more.

    Thanks as always

    Hi Max,

    Possibly it’s the older Knoll Unmult version, see here:

    You can recreate Unmult using a couple of included effects,

    Shift Channels set to take Alpha from Lightness

    Remove Background Matting set to black.

    There’s a preset in Effects & Presets for this (I think, unless I made / imported it a long time ago)

    You’ll find that the default preset can desaturate the original quite a lot. Using Max RGB to Alpha and then remove BG color is I believe the actual recipe unmult uses.

    Hey @Filip Vandueren. Can you please elaborate on the effects you would use in AfterEffects to keep the saturation? What is MaxRGB for example. Cheers, Tania
