Colour pass

I wanted to ask if you can let the orange colour of a General Lee Dukes of hazzard car show through and everything else B/W in FCP2?

In Premiere you added a colour pass filter and selected the colour to show through, how and can this be done on the mac?

Thanks

Paul

You could accomplish this using the 3 way color corrector - select all colors other than the orange, using 'Limit Effect' towards the bottom of the visual 3 way color corrector display.. Then, set Saturation to 0. Done!

I just did it to doublecheck the names of things such as the Limit Effect - took under 30 seconds to remove all color other than greens on a video.

PS - Meep... FCP2? I misread as FCS2. The step-by-step applies to FCP6.... Maybe still the same... (or similar? I hope?)

I was directed to this link that does the job http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage...ille_look.html

Check it out, it does more or less just like you explained, thanks for your help.
