supress color in After effects

Hello there

I've been using eyeon fusion for colorgrading the last year, and I have become totally dependent on the color supress function.

I don't have access to fusion anymore and I'm trying to the same in After effects now with color finesse (1.5). There seems to no simple way to this in finesse or am I overlooking something?

There seems to be one other plugin from toolfarm, called supressor. 12$ plug that does the trick, but is it any good?

Would like to here from you after effect graders out there!

Nobody have any color supression technices in Color Finesse or other plug for After Effects?

I have tried using the secondary color correct in finesse to do it. It is possible to do it there, but timeconsuming...

Well.. I hope there is someone out there who has some experience in this.

The hue./saturation filter is sort of like a secondary color corrector.

You can limit by hue, and affect hue + saturation (in HSL color space). Something about the filter looks weird though.

The shot i'm correcting is a studio shot with white background and a person sitting in a chair.

There was some sort of technical difficulty on set making the pro35 adapter work with the jvc dv/hdv camera properly. So now there is magenta hue on top of the image and green on the lower part.

My idea on the studio was to take all color out except skin color and then at the same time take out the green magenta hue. I tried it in fusion now on my old workplace and fusion takes out the green and magenta on the white and on the face/clothes. It looks really nice.

I'm currently demo'ing the plug called suppressor by fan. I'll give some feedback on how it works. Only costs 12$, so if its good I'll buy it I guess. Strange that this seemingly simple task is so difficult to do i AE.

Well, shout if anyone else out there have any good ideas!

It worked quite well actually.

Guess I'm buying it! ...

But I'm still interested in any advice on how I could do this with finesse or AE plugs..
