Hello Chaps,

I have been flumoxed by some colour grading issues in PP and i found a wee trick that i am sure people may know about...

One of my key tricks is to use 'auto levels'. A neat trick picked up from my editor at BBC. It is not a one size fits all solution, but the very neat thing about the PP filter is the ability to apply 'temporal smoothing' to the filter by raking the slider to about half way. Very useful on screens where there is a bit shift in luminance or a lot of black in the background which 'auto levels' otherwise tries to work to death too.

The other handy tool in the auto levels is the 'blend with original' slider. Nice if the filter over compensates on the colour shift.

Happy trails.

Very cool! I've always avoided anything "Auto" with filters and plugins. You have found a very practical use for it.

Thanks,

Joe

Yes I confess to having felt very clever with myself...but it is not all good. I have had considerable trouble with rendering on this project, so much so that PP has become unworkable. I am about to put up another thrad pleading for help!

When that happens here it is usually the result of a drive being too full. Check your render drive and your system drive.

Thanks.

System drive has 150GB of free space and Scratch disk 850gb.

Should be enough?

Premiere and Media Encoder tend to fill up a cache on the system drive when exporting. This can be cleaned out in Premiere Preferences. Under Media and Media Cache Database, select Clean.

Andy, telling us how many free megabytes you have tells us nothing without knowing the drive size - you need 10 to 20% free space on ALL hard drives for them to function properly in a video environment, otherwise the system has no room to write temp or cache files, which will bring any system to its knees.

Thanks David,

Understood.

My main system drive is 1TB with 150GB free

My Scratch disk is 3TB with 850gb free

My archive drive is 6tb (2 x 6TB mirror raids) with 3TB free


Should be enough space.
