Neon light, inappropriate shutter and ever-changing white balance.

Hi everybody,

Last week I've recorded a video with my AG-HPX171E in a place lighted by neon lamps. Unfortunately, the camera's shutter speed was inappropriate. Thus, the video has a continuous change in it's white balance from warm tones to cool tones and turn back again and again until the end of the timeline. This issue was warned by the manual of the camera, but now...

...Is there any solution to harmonise or standarize the white tone along the video? Something that could eliminate those peaks of warm balance and cool balance, al let it be something intermediate all long the video.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Greetings!

Nope, you will have to cut the clip up in segments
Correct the warm tone and cool tone separate.
If they are all the same you could use copy/paste attributes on remaining clips.
Use cross dissolve to ease the changes.

You could use a color corrector filter like the fast color corrector and keyframe the white balance over time.

With these types of situations (a stage spot with a failing bulb or power ballast can do it as well), the color shift is continuously changing, so sectioning the clip and assigning unchanging white balance values will give you very obvious cut points in most cases.
