Grayscale Method
Calculates the color by using an average RGB value. (R + G + B)/3
Uses the weights proposed in ITU-R BT.709 standard. (0.21*R + 0.72*G + 0.07*B)
Older calculation formula, defined in ITU-R BT.601 standard. (0.30*R + 0.59*G + 0.11*B)
Custom Weights
If checked, uses a custom weighted formula instead. {formula}
Red multiplier.
