Isolate Color on Black?
on Jun 29, 2017 at 4:00:19 am

Hi! Im working on a shot where I'm trying to add some optical flares using Video Copilot's plugin. So far, Ive been making a luma matte out of my footage and using that to track the luminance for the flares. However, in this shot I have two lights that are a very different color than anything else in the scene (orange, whereas the rest of the scene is dark and bluish), so I want to track a couple orange flares to these. Is there a way to isolate JUST this orange color to use it to track the flares? I'd rather not do it all by hand....

You can still make a luma matte. Use something like Curves, Levels, Threshold.... lots of ways to do it. Nest your footage in another comp and have at it.
