Limit Effect in Color Corrector 3-Way won't select Chroma in FCP7
on Nov 11, 2015 at 8:32:18 pm

I'm trying to use the eyedropper in the "Limit Effect" section of the CC 3-way filter to select a color in my shot (there's some redness I'm trying to tone down), but it won't let me select anything on the Chroma scale. Even if I have the box checked for that and unchecked for Saturation and Luma, when I try to select the color in the shot with the eyedropper, FCP automatically unchecks the Chroma box and checks the Sat and Luma boxes, and adjusts those scales from the eyedropper, while leaving the Chroma scale unadjusted.



I can't find anything about this in the tutorials I've been following, and this doesn't make sense why it would do this, so any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks!

im having similar issues.

im runing FCP7 on Yosemite, and i'm pretty sure it;s because of that.
never had this behaviour before.

i just have to find the colour myself!

well there you go...

selecting colours manually it can help to switch the view to just the key
that's a key icon on the right of the limit effect area.
it's got 3 modes:
final view
key
no effect (i think)

Hey Nick, thanks for the response. I'm a little confused by what you mean though. The problem is I can't actually select the color range with the eyedropper because FCP automatically unchecks the chroma box when I try to click on it. Is the key icon the, uh, "key" to solving this? Is that what you're saying?

"The problem is I can't actually select the color range with the eyedropper because FCP automatically unchecks the chroma box"

thats different behaviour to what i get,
for me FCP selects a completely different colour to what i pick
just now i got a pure red, clicking on a blue sky!
maybe it;s always red, i cant remember other than it doesn't work


"Is the key icon the, uh, "key" to solving this? Is that what you're saying?"

no the key button is useful when you manually find the colour
using the colour controls, plus luma and sat controls in the limit effect area.

Huh, yeah, that sounds weird too. Mine's also doing this thing where any adjustments I make in the 3-way CC don't actually effect the picture, in addition to this not being able to select the chroma scale thing. (And to be clear, I'm working with the filter that's added to the clip, not accidentally trying to play with it just from clicking on it in the effects box or something)

Anyway, it seems like no one knows what the problem is-- I can't make sense of it either. I'll probably just bring the movie into Resolve. I just didn't want to do that since the adjustments were really minor, but thanks anyway.
