When to use 'Color Smoothing'
on Mar 22, 2011 at 2:49:13 pm

I mostly work with SD Pal programmes. I've often wondered about the filters 'Color Smoothing - 4:2:2' and 'Color Smoothing - 4:1:1'. What are these for?

[Michael Lansdell] "'Color Smoothing - 4:2:2' and 'Color Smoothing - 4:1:1"

They're two filters meant to 'assist' the chroma keyer in FCP by smoothing the chroma channels.
One is for 4:2:2 video.
The other is for 4:1:1 video (mostly DV)

Best,

Thanks, I've always done that keying in After Effects so guess I've never needed to know that!

Chroma Smoothing helps to rebuild the Chroma after Downsampling.
That one works when you edit 411 stuff (DV NTSC, DVCProPAl) on a 422/444 sequence.
For 420 stuff the only Chroma smooth filter I know is the Nattress.
