Due to the fact that the audience of users of the plugin is multinational, and not everyone knows English properly (and especially Russian), we decided to focus on the visual component. There is no voice-over in the video, all explanations are given in text form. So that anyone can translate with the help of an online translator, even if he doesn’t understand what is at stake.

The theme of color separation is not the simplest, and in order not to complicate it further, we tried to present everything as simple as possible, and without delving into the terminology.
