How do they do this?

In some videos, I have seen where and object is it's original color, and the rest will be black and white. Like a car will be driving down the road will be red, and the rest black and white. Or someone will be on a bicycle, and everything that's green like the trees and grass will be green, but the guy on the bicycle and everythig else will be lack and white.

Is this a feature you can do with PPro? Do you need to purchase some effect or something? I don't need to do it, I would just like some info for future reference.

thanks.

Yes you can, key the color in, I'm not exactly sure of the workflow in Premier Pro since I use a Canopus card in my system that has a different way of doing it, but if you can translate this into Premier Pro you should be able to get what you want.

In short, I add a B&W filter to my video and key in the color that I'm bringing out. In the Canopus plug-in it's all in one step and really fast, but that's the short of it, you basically find the color that you want and bring it out. I just used this on a wedding video that I shot a couple of months ago where the scene was all in B&W and the red rose that the groom sent the bride before the ceremony was the only color in the frame.

In Premiere, it is called a Color Pass. You should find this function in the video effects menu.

You beat me to the punch, after I posted I couldn't resist to check Premier and found it after messing with the Key presets with no luck, tried it with a few frames of my daugher on her swingset and all but the seat of the swing are B&W now.

theres also colour change inf u want to be creative. teh only use ive ever found for this though is for cheesy video effects, but the only REAL use ive found was using the colour pass filter to create a semblence of time lapse where the sky chages through a gradation of colours. Its also good for fashion stuff where u can show the same bikini in different colours for different skin tones, now THAT one was fun to do..

I applied the color pass, which turned it back and white. Now how do I bring out a color?
