Description

Amount

Adjusts the level of processing used on the source. Higher values will create a more extreme bleach bypass look.

Brightness

Bleach bypass tends to darken the source media. The brightness value can be used to compensate for this darkening.

Silver Source

Traditional, chemically based bleach bypass is created by partially or completely skipping the bleaching part of the film development process. This causes the silver to be retained, resulting in a black and white image overlaid on the color image. The silver source property changes how the plugin simulates this process.
