What is a Nexyad Skin ?
The Nexyad Skins are based on a high technology combining image analysis, human visual perception analysis, image processing and color theories of great picturial movements. Whatever the incoming images (rushes or already modified) the application of our Skins generates a final rendering with the selected colors positioned where we wish. The all process is digital.
Our skins are not LUT and it do not need any human intervention. Job is done in one click.

The new Nexyad Skin is very different from our previous skins. This is an image color processing whereby we voluntarily transformed yellows and oranges and have desaturated human skins in high light. The whole gives a kind of rusty images printing. The high and middle ranges have been lightened. We’ve added an effect that recalls the film bleach bypass technique to enhance the brightness, shadows and increase contrast lost by desaturation. It is important to remember that unlike some ideas still widespread, it is possible to obtain in digital all the effects of silver film, it is only a matter of work.
Finally, it gives very bright images, almost raw, which can put a scene or a movie in the past. That’s why we called it « 1969 Spirit ».
