Hello!

I have uploaded a video that has a sort of monochromatic effect that I would also like to have on a video of mine. Is this simple to achieve? I could see this type of effect achieved through a preset of some sort. Any nudges in the right direction would be great!

Happy new year!!

Sorry, no preset for something like this. You can do something akin to it by increasing the contrast with the Levels effect, then applying Tint.

You'll note that the subject is both separated from the background and possesses weird eyes. Those are additional techniwues.

Dave thanks for the post! I'm fiddling with the video now. I should mention though that I ultimately want to use the luma key to take out one color, mainly the background color, in order to only have one moving image and color. The overall idea is to project this image onto a surface already illuminated by a color, thus substituting the background that does not exists in the video. Just in case my theory does not pan out, do you have any recommendations for this issue?

best regards!

Yes, I do have a suggestion -- run a test.

Make a short-duration clip that looks the way you want, simulate the conditions under which it will be projected, and project it. See if the result looks the same as it did in your head.

You don't want to go to a lot of work unless you KNOW it's going to look the way you want.

Dave,

Wise words. I'll definitely take them. I'll update you with the results.
