AutoAdjust is an automatic adjustement filter. It calculates statistics of clip, stabilizes them temporally and uses them to adjust luminance gain & color balance.

AutoAdjust have a smoothing & dithering algorithm to avoid banding issue. Calculations are made in 32bits float to avoid rounding errors and are internally multithreaded and SSE2/AVX2 optimized.

For manual adjustments, see all functions in the "SmoothAdjust" plugin.

General Settings

    external_clip [default: none]
     Use external analyze clip to retrieve clip's statistics
      --> EXAMPLE: black borders need to be cropped before analyze of the clip
                   " src = last
                     crp = src.crop(xx,xx,xx,xx)
                     AutoAdjust(src, external_clip = crp) "

    scd_threshold [default: 12]

    change_status [default: "empty"]
     Override the scenechange detection algorithm
      --> EXAMPLES: - "100"          = force scenechange at frame 100
                    - "!200-300"     = force no scenechange at each frame between 200~300
                    - "!400;500-600" = force no scenechange at frame 400
                                     & force scenechange at each frame between 500~600

    use_interp [default: true]

    high_quality [default: false]
     Use high quality interpolation (slower)

    high_bitdepth [default: false]

    threads_count [default: 0]
     Number of internal threads
      0  = automatic choice  [=cores in Avs2.6 and =1 in Avs+/AvsMT]
      xx = number of threads [max = 16]

    asm_opt [default: 0]
     Use ASM optimization when available
      0 = automatic choice
      1 = use C code
      2 = use SSE2 code
      3 = use AVX2 code

    debug_view [default: false]
     Show the debug view at fullscreen resolution

AutoGain Settings

    auto_gain [default: false]
     Enable automatic luminance gain

    dark_limit [default: 1.50]
     Amount of allowed change for dark pixels
      1.0  = no gain
      10.0 = no limit

    bright_limit [default: 1.50]
     Amount of allowed change for bright pixels
      1.0  = no gain
      10.0 = no limit

    gamma_limit [default: 1.25]
     Amount of allowed change for gamma processing
      1.0  = no gain
      10.0 = no limit

    dark_exclude [default: 0.50]
     Amount of excluded darkest pixels in "mimimum" calculation (in percentile of pixels)

      1.0 = 1% of excluded pixels

    bright_exclude [default: 0.50]
     Amount of excluded brightest pixels in "maximum" calculation (in percentile of pixels)

AutoAdjust is internally multithreaded with official AviSynth version. If AviSynthPlus or AviSynthMT is detected, internal multithreading is automatically disabled even if external multithreading isn't used (this can be reactivated in parameters).

AutoAdjust is designed to work with external multithreading, so fastest MT mode can be used. With AviSynthPlus, this plugin is a MT_NICE_FILTER (automatic register, no need to call SetFilterMtMode). With AviSynthMT, SetMtMode(1) must be called before AutoAdjust.
