BCC Correct Selected FX
by David Harrison on Jan 31, 2011 at 9:30:44 pm
I watched the tutorial on the Correct Selected FX last week and have been trying to use it, but is there an easy way to just select one specific area to change? I'm trying to change the color of the sky but the color of the building is very similar and it changes with the changes in the FX module.

I'd suggest using the following method:
• Set the View pop-up to Output, click on the color picker and select a mid-range color from the sky
• Set the View pop-up to Matte and use the Color Range, Blend, Choke and Blur parameters to fine-tune the matte so that you are isolating only the colors that you want to affect with the color correction
• Set the View pop-up back to Output and adjust the colors
You can also use the PixelChooser matte / mask system that is built-into the filter to further isolate the color correction.
