How to colour correct this-advice please?


Hi guys, I filmed with 2 different cameras but my main camera came out all blown out and saturated. Ive tried everything but cant get it to match with camera 2 at all.

In this 5 second clip you first see the decent footage then the blown out footage.

Im using adobe creative suite. Any idea how to get it to match a bit closer to the decent footage.

Thanks,
Brian.

Same here no major CC expert but I think it's salvageable enough to get you out of trouble. Did this in Vegas so I would imagine you could achieve much the same in Adobe. Do you know any local experienced Premiere editors?

Well thank you there Noa. On reflection I think I could have done better on the blue suit. Hope the OP has some luck with it because it not a nice situation to be stuck in is it!

Re: How to colour correct this-advice please?

Hey guys, apologies for my late reply, I've been off sick.

Thanks a million for taking a look at this.

I guess what I meant by trying everything(a bit melodramatic I was)
was I tried the usual levels and 3-way colour corrector etc. but Its been a while since Ive colour-corrected and I seem to have lost those skills-I just couldnt get the same effect that the 2 other guys got.

Which colour correction effects did you guys employ? Ill give it another shot.

Re: How to colour correct this-advice please?

Hey guys,

thanks for the help. I think I nailed it after a lot more messing around with a mix of the fast colour corrector/color balance/levels.

My trouble is I do web work for a few months, then video stuff for a few months then graphic design for a few months and it takes me a while to get back to speed with each area of design and get my skills back.

e.g. in this instance-I blew out the footage by having no ND filter(or I couldnt fiodn the option on hte camera on the day of shooting cos I hadnt touched the camera for months.

Take care,
Brian.
