What is the best way to saturate a single colour?
(used change to color --> Blue to green)
Blue is now green, but I'd like to boost the green and desaturate the skin tones. It's keyed footage, so it's just the actor.

What will give me the most precise control? Mask?

Thanks

I get the fact that you want to change some colors around, but I don't understand what you're ultimately trying to accomplish. Frankly, it sounds a little odd and in need of some clarification.

Are you trying to get something to key better? Are you doing something else? Can you elaborate?

Just want to saturate the green more, which is now the new colour of the shirt. Then I'd like to desaturate the skin tone of the actor.
(Nothing to do with keying, just want a more vibrant green on the shirt)

I applied vibrance to the image after the other color correction adjustments I made, which has helped a little with boosting the green, but it also boosts the actor's skin tones. So again, I've used filters to bring down just her skin tones.
Just wondering what other ways I could this.

Duplicating layers and playing with blend modes and color correction was another option. To bring up the green in the shirt.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks.

I'd play around with Color Finesse, which comes bundled with AE (not in tryout versions). There are good tutorials on using Color Finesse here on the COW by Andrew Devis.

Thanks Dave.
I'll look into that, seems to be more precise.
