This page gives information about the Unclamped Color Render Element.


Page Contents ×


The Unclamped Color Render Element is a color image that shows the original colors that were clamped or adjusted with Color Mapping. This render element is useful in the compositing process for enhancing extreme colors (very bright or very dark) or for shading the final image with the unclamped colors.

When Color Mapping is used, the values that are clamped depend on whether the Clamp output option has been enabled, as well as the rest of the Color Mapping parameters.
