16.107.1 - Sample Controls

16.107.1.1 - Trends

Operator dialog controls that have a Trend button next to them offer animation functionality. Trend allows you to set that variable over a set of frames. Each frame of the animation can be thought of as a slice of time. The trends allow you to alter some, all, or none of the variables for a particular time slice. Variables that have multiple states can be set to any of a number of values in the trend. Variables that are either on or off can only have an on or off value in the trend. You will notice that the trend graphs have equidistantly spaced vertical lines. Each of these lines represents a frame in the animation. The number of frames can be altered using Sequence controls... in the TimeLine pull down menu. Animation lengths of 100 - 999 frames will be represented with a vertical bar being 10 frames, and animation length greater than 1000 frames will have a vertical bar for every 100 frames.

16.107.1.2 - Red

This control allows you to specify the amount of the Red component of the sampled color. The control can be set using the slide gadget or by entering the appropriate value in the provided text entry field.

16.107.1.3 - Green

This control allows you to specify the amount of the Green component of the sampled color. The control can be set using the slide gadget or by entering the appropriate value in the provided text entry field.

16.107.1.4 - Blue

This control allows you to specify the amount of the Blue component of the sampled color. The control can be set using the slide gadget or by entering the appropriate value in the provided text entry field.

16.107.1.5 - Red range

The Red range control allows you to specify the variance for the Red component of the RGB color sample. If this value is pasted into the Key Range control, it will also set the variance for the HSL color space.

16.107.1.6 - Green range

The Green range control allows you to specify the variance for the Green component of the RGB color sample. If this value is pasted into the Key Range control, it will also set the variance for the HSL color space.

16.107.1.7 - Blue range

The Blue range control allows you to specify the variance for the Blue component of the RGB color sample. If this value is pasted into the Key Range control, it will also set the variance for the HSL color space.

16.107.1.8 - Make this the Key Color

This control, when selected, will place the sampled color directly into the Key Color control and select it. This will also adjust the variance in the Key Range control.

16.107.1.9 - Include Extreme Variations

This control, when selected, will include any extreme values that were encountered in the color sample. These extreme values will alter the actual color sample and the individual ranges. This function is used for sampling regions that have a wide range of colors. For example, an image of a bright blue sky with clouds contains a wide range of colors between the clouds and the sky. Sampling the sky and cloud region, with this selected, will provide you with a better sample and range for color keying.

16.107.1.10 - Set Color

This allows you to manually set or adjust the sample color. If you would like to learn more about the set color dialog, Click Here.

16.107.1.11 - Hex Display and Clipboard Copy

The sampled color is displayed in hexadecimal to the right of the color well. If you click -->Copy, the color is copied to the Windows clipboard in a format directly compatible with HTML color specifications.
