Separate luma and color channels

PostFri Sep 30, 2022 1:47 am

Hi! I want to know what nodes can I use to separate my image in two channels, in this case luminosity and color.

I want to have the flexibility to work in each channel separately. For example if I want to add blur to only the luma channel.

Any idea? :)

Colorspace is the node. Convert to one of numerous luma-chroma models or some HSV/HSL variant where luminance or something similar is in lightness/luminance/value component.

They all produce three channels, not two. One luminance based and two color components.
I do stuff.

Bitmap can output just Luminance if you just want one channel and want highest performance. There's also a Fuse out there called ColorToMono that gives some more dimensionality reduction options.
