How can I see the values applied by Auto Levels?
I need them for applying to a footage manually without using Auto Levels.

You can't, but you can reproduce the effect by understanding how it works.

From the Auto Levels documentation [link]:

"The Auto Levels effect maps the lightest and darkest values in each color channel in the image to white and black, and then redistributes the intermediate values. As a result, highlights appear lighter and shadows appear darker. Because Auto Levels adjusts each color channel individually, it may remove or introduce color casts."
