Shadow/Highlight Issue

As i use this feature in photoshop on many of my images, i decided i would attempt to use it on some video footage. Today i tried it and the results were to say the least unexpected! I ended up with a posterized, greyscale effect. I tried rendering it and outputting it but nothing changed - Am i missing something incredibly obvious? Thank you for any response

Hmmmmmm................ I've used this 'effect' and thought it worked quite well. Other than making the encode/render time horendous, the effect worked perfecto.

Can you explain a bit more?

It is irrelevant if i render/output it as it remains the same?!

Wow! That's wild (but not in a good way).

It's working fine here, with DV and HDV footage - just like in photoshop. What is your input format? Do the other "Adjust" filters work OK?

yes every other filter works fine, its just shadow/highlight that comes out bizzarely. ive tried changing the input format with no luck, have no tried different resolutions though.

Tim,

That's weird, I haven't seen that. My first question would be, what's wrong with the original? It looks pretty slick? Just trying to get a little more details in the shadows/wheels, or something?
