You can make the image stand out more by adjusting the levels.
- Select the Talent_DV layer in the Timeline panel, and then choose Effect > Color Correction > Levels (see Figure 21).
- In the Levels area of the Effect Controls panel, increase the Input Black amount to 13.0.
- Decrease the Input White amount to 225.0 (see Figure 22).
The Levels effect remaps the range of input color levels onto a new range of output color levels and changes the gamma correction curve. The Levels effect is useful for basic image-quality adjustment. It works the same way as the Levels adjustment in Photoshop.
