fixing a red nose
on Mar 24, 2010 at 3:44:04 pm

I shot an interview a couple of weeks ago and I must have been really rushed because when I got back to look at the video, I noticed that the subject's nose was red (probably from being out in the cold before the shoot).

Here's what it looks like:

Does anyone have any Final Cut tips for getting rid of the redness, but just isolating it to the nose area?

Reshooting is not out of the question, but I would rather not do that. I don't think it looks too bad, but my boss happened to walk by the edit suite when I was working on it and said something to the effect of, "Wow, I hope you can fix that."

two options:

use colour, there is a video with walter, which explains how to do it.
use colorista (magic bullet)

invite her for dinner, she needs it.

Richard Harrington has a Cow tutorial on Fixing Exposure. What would be helpful for you is the discussion of how to isolate colors in a scene with the 3-way Color Corrector and then affect them.

It didn't look too bad to me. I think the in-focus bookshelf is more distracting than her nose. Anyway, I would duplicate the layer and apply a garbage matte to it just around the nose area, feather the edges and then use the 3-way color corrector to take out some red. If she moves around a bunch you may have to add some keyframes to track her nose.

That is not too bad, you could just duplicate the layer and put a garbage matte around the nose, and color correct accordingly.
