I've got an interview with somewhat harsh lighting and want to pretty the face up a bit by softening the color channel. I used to be able to do this pretty easily in Apple Color. I can use a secondary to qualify the face, but how do I go about smoothing the skin? All I can find in the secondary window is saturation, contrast, etc (only very crude controls). Is there a way to do this?
Thanks for your response - yes, I thought about that too, but then I figured if I'm going to do that I might as well do the work in after effects. My larger question is, is there a way to use the blurring effect but limit it to an HSL selection (you know, a secondary?) Are speed grade's secondaries really this limited? Next to useless, really. Or am I missing something?
