Flattening an images color? (making a green and yellow object closer to all green?)
on Oct 15, 2011 at 6:06:02 am

hi, I've got some footage of green and yellow lizard skin and need to 'crush' the colors so it looks more green, ideally including less dark greens and yellows - flattening the colors to a single color and brightness if you will. thankyou in advance for any answers!

You could duplicate your layer, key out the yellow colors, reverse the alpha and then colorize the layer.
You could also use Hue/Saturation and, instead of working on the master channel, choose to work on yellow, adjust the settings a bit to isolate the colors you need to adjust and either choose to colorize them or just swing the hue somewhat.
You could also try some secondary color correction options with Color Finesse.
There are probably other ways too :)

hi, thanks for your reply, I believe adjusting seperate colors is the way, when I add a HSL / Hue effect, there just seems to be one hue control for the whole image, not seperate colors (like Photoshop), is there a way to do this? (or rather I'm sure there is, could you enlighten me, thankyou)

In After Effects, when you choose the hue/saturation effect, it has a channel dropdown. You can pick a different color, then change the settings of that color range to effect just the tones you want.
