Color Correct Masking

Hola!

I'm new to this site, so I'm not even sure if this'll help me in time. Been working on the Smoke for about a year now, and have now just started working on the Color Corrector Tool.

I need to know how to color correct a section after I have made my mask. I have masked and keyframed the piece I need. That's about how far I've gotten. Any suggestions? Procedure-wise, please.

Thanks!

Well if you have a matte created (from your mask) you can enter the CC with F/B/M and color correct at will. The Cc will then only affect your matted/masked area.

You could also do this all in the DVE, Mack and CC, so you don't even need to layoff a matte.

BKM is right - doing this in DVE is pretty fast...

If you've already made your matte the workflow might go like this:

On your desktop is your plate and your matte

Click DVE

Click your plate (Front)
Click your plate again (Back)
Click your matte (Matte)

Your plate is in L1

Click CCF
In the CC module, instead of 'result' click/roll to 'context'

Now, as you tweak your colors, you will see them comped against the plate.

There's a extra upside to this: if your original matte isn't working quite right - you can enter the keyer and adjust clips/gains/masks 'till it's right.

Good luck!
