Remove forehead tanline
by Joel Larsen on May 25, 2012 at 3:16:41 pm
I have some short video segments containing a subject with a large tan line across his forehead. For his sake (and my own) I would like to "cover" or "remove" the line. Basic color correction did not yield satisfactory results.
Individual on the right in the photo below is where I need some correction.
This particular shot is 720/60p. Some takes are static, while others are on a dolly.
Software access: Motion 5, Final Cut X, After Effects Cs5
Very new to this type of correction, any help or guidance is appreciated.

Color Grading software is what I would use. A program such as Color can select the tan line only in its secondary and you could adjust the tan line only. It acts like a keyer where you select a certain color and then adjust it. I have not used it yet, but Black Magic offers a free version of its color grading software: http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/davinciresolve/models/
