Colour Filter

A colour filter is a fullscreen effect applied to each frame of a render after the frame has arrived in the video buffer ? just before it is written to the display device. The filter tints the output according to a specified colour palette. This is often done to create otherworldly lighting, or in combination with depth fog, to render underwater scenes.
