3-Way Color Corrector NOT WORKING!
on Sep 23, 2011 at 6:29:44 pm

I need to color correct a shot ASAP. I make a sequence, drag my clip into it, drag and drop the 3-way color corrector filter, but when I start moving things in the filter after double clicking the clip in the timeline, NOTHING changes. I seriously have no idea why this isn't working and I'm not that familiar with color correcting. But I have done it in the past and I remember pressing those buttons and having things change in the picture. What is going on?!

Can someone please help, I'm freaking out because I'm on a deadline. Thank you!

Another addition: I opened an old project and applied a filter and it works just fine. What is wrong with the projects I'm working on now?

Are you POSITIVE that you've double-clicked on the actual track, with the play head over it, BEFORE invoking the 3-way? Do me a favor, select the track by double-clicking it. then use the menus at the top to get to the 3-way, instead of dragging and dropping. See if that makes a diff.

Hi Mark,
Nope. That doesn't work.

I have 4 projects open, each one is a short film and I am cutting a promo for each one. In every one of those projects, filters aren't working. This is so bizarre because filters work in my older project.

And come to think of it, I had tried to use an audio filter and that wasn't working either. I ignored it thinking there was a problem with that filter because it was in my favorites bin. Something is obviously wrong.

Hi Chris,
I am definitely going to give this a try when I have a minute. Something is definitely wrong for all four projects I'm working on not be able to use filters.

What is (are) the formats of the source clips, and post your sequence settings too.

Try hitting butterfly-5 to call up the Effects tab, then navigate to the 3-way corrector. Physically drag it to your clip on the timeline, then double-click on the clip. Go to the filters tab. Click on the Visual button. Scrub to the clip you applied the filter to on the timeline. Try adjusting. Any luck?

Thanks so much for all your comments. I shall hold my hands up and say what an idiot I am. After a while I thought I would check the sequence settings to see if I was missing something and 'filters' was UNchecked under Render control. D'oh! But I love it when it's something simple and you don't have to go re-installing your system again!

There is a God! I have checked the Filters box too and after so much grief and time down the pan now have Three Way Colour Converter up and running. Bless you for the advice.
