Blade MagesCRAZY Chromatic Aberration? Need a fix!
by on Jul 8, 2011 at 2:47:13 am

Shot some footage today on 3 cameras: 7D, 60D, and an HVX200.

With the 60D, I experienced something a bit unusual. Look at the bleachers in the photo. Is this just chromatic aberration on all of the edges of the individual benches?



Unfortunately, because the 60D had the glass on it that I needed for the shot, that was the only camera that shot a few scenes. A re-shoot is not an option - my idea was to mask and motion track any of the rainbow colored crap and desaturate it. At least it wouldnt be as distracting... Anyone have any better ideas for a fix to this?

Thanks for the help!

You might have better luck trying to blur the background. Some serious moire going on there. In the future try opening up the aperture more to blur the background. In bright daylight you'll need an ND filter to accomplish this.

That's "moire" pattern very common on HDSLRs. Be aware that it happens on fine detail.

Try Moire Buster filter

But be careful as too strong settings can introduce problems in the overall colour of the image.

You might also try just color correcting to massively desaturate the problem area. That could hide the problem since the bleachers are grey anyway.

Try to decrease the sharpness in "picture styles" to 0. This will reduce the moire and will give to the overall video more natural look (and better encoder performance - after transcoding to can try sharpen it)
