You can apply effects to your shots using Lustre Sparks plugins created by Autodesk or third-party developers. These plugins are image processing effects that you can add to individual shots. You can apply up to six effects to the same shot.
Lustre Sparks plugins occupy a specific, fixed spot in the processing pipeline in Lustre— between the secondary and output colour grading. You can therefore create them anytime and the effect will be the same. It is suggested to add them after the secondary grading process so that you can see the effect on the graded shot.
Lustre Sparks plugins are integrated into the application and function in the same way as any effect in Lustre. For example, as with colour grading effects, you can apply a plugin created on one shot to another shot. When you save the grade, plugin data is saved with colour grading data in the grade file. Likewise, Lustre Sparks plugins are rendered with all other effects in the processing pipeline and are reset in the same way as other effects.
