Eliminating "shine" or hotspots in subjects face
on May 31, 2012 at 1:02:35 am

Doing some green screen work for a company. Used 3 point lighting technique to light subject with soft box lighting. Got into post production and noticed a bright shine on the shaved head of the subject as well as on forehead and cheek. Anyone know the best and fastest way to eliminate this shine in after effects? Hoping i dont have to re-shoot.

Thank you,

Steve

Your situation depends on the severity of the shine. If it's really bad, there won't be any detail in the blown-out areas: using the Curves effect judiciously may knock down the over-bright areas, but the guy's skin will look like it's made out of plastic.

You might be able to get away with creating a luma matte by isolating the bad areas, which can then be used in combination with a skin-colored solid that has noise applied to it.

Chris Wright, who occasionally posts on the COW, once posted a free-download AE project that he claims can repair such areas. If you do a search for his name, you might be able to find it. I hope it works for you.
