Removing Red Eye from video
on Apr 21, 2011 at 7:54:28 pm

I know it's easy to remove red eye from still photos, but I did a shoot with a live band using flashing lights with some red in the mix and my subject on a dance floor had the evil red eyes. Everything else is color correct. I've never had a red eye problem in my videos before. Any quick fixes out there?

Keying combined with color correction would do the trick. Color can do this even more exactingly.

Would I need to do some masking on the eyes. They are the only problem. I've color corrected the image and everything looks great, but she still has the devel eyes : )


It was just a short clip, so I cheated and converted it to B&W.

It was shot on the 7D. My EX-1 had the other angle and it looks fine.
Very strange, since I have never had this issue before. Probably because of the band lighting.

I didn't want to get into after effects, but the tracking may just solve the issue.

In the secondaries room in Color, use the HSL key and select the red in the eye and a tracking mask so it effects only the area around the eyes (and nothing else in the shot) to desaturate the red part of the eyes.
