CS3.0 Color enhancement Blue's and Red's

Hey folks,
I have never tried to change color on a video clip so I really have no idea where to start. But, I would like to make the Reds and Blues in an American Flag "pop" if that is possible.

Is there any easy way for a "newbie" to do this?

Thanks in advance.

You can start by adding some contrast and saturation.. That should do the trick I believe.

In the RGB color correction you will find the Pedestal for the blacks and the Gain for the whites.
Use the YC waveform to max them both out. This will give you nice colours.
Before and after.

Ann,
That was a great tip!
I was able to acheive a similar look. However, I am not sure i did it the way you described.
Here are my setting's.

Basically, I just keyed in your same Pedastal and Gain Numbers and got the same results. However, I am interested in understanding what you meant by "Using the YC Waveform and maxing them out".

Also, How do I know if I am on the Blacks and Whites for the Pedstal and Gain?

I am confused a little. (But my flags look better)

I am on Pal and you are probably on NTSC.
You need to use the YC wavefrom.
