Emphasize LUT (background color grading)

Hello. Hope you have a good year. :side:

Emphasize.fx uses depth to select everything but the subject and then desaturate it. I was wondering, would it be possible to use a LUT instead?

For example in this game, the gray is what Emphasize touches, which can be closer or further apart.


In PS terms, it would be like always having a "mask" for the background, with any color correction you want in the LUT. Very powerful, I think. For "local contrast," when something looks "nicer" if everything around looks dull. Maybe what Otis had in mind.

Any help is appreciated, and again, hope you enjoy 2020. :side:

This was the code for Emphasize.fx

And for instance this one applies a LUT based on Luma, so if the game had clear night/day differences you could have two LUTs.

And I saw a LUT.fx with even a LUT selector.

You could try using the CanvasMasking shader i did to mask any lut you want using the emphasize-type fog
