    basic color correction

    Hello i am arrived at the part cof correcting my video

    I would like to have some hint

    when i enbter the color correction mode and apply some value avid create a track long all the timeline..so i need to cut it everytime according to the clips i am working on it

    is there a way to have avid creating the track only for the clip i am working at?

    i am using the y waveform and i see that the changement in it are applied only when i leave a control bar ...while i am moving it the waveform will not reflect that movement..is that normal?

     

    last..is there a way to set to default vaue a parameter i am worling at?

     

    thanks all

    ok i see if i cut the grey track in corrispondance of each clip then when enetering color correction i ll have a track created just for that portion (see the red dot in the image) , allo the NEXT clip works correctly now

    but now..do i have to make the cut all the timeline long manually?

    If you want the color correction to apply only to the clip you are color correcting, only turn on the video track with the clip on it. If you must have the color correction on a higher track, then you're going to have to add edits to the higher track.

    stefanocps:

    It's working that way because you have only the highest track turned on, and there are no more clips on that track.

    If you want your color correction to be on the top track, then you'll have to add edits like you are doing. If you only turned on the video track for the clip you are color correcting, both of these problems would be solved.

    Re: basic color correction

    sometimes after adjusting some parameters  i want to revert them to default value

    paramenter like those for highlight, black and shadow and so on

     

    also i ask again

    the waveform don't respond to change while i am moving the slider (again for changing paramenters like black highlight, shadow..)..but it will show the change only when i stop moving the slider

    is that normal?

    Sorry, I missed that. Yes, that's normal.

    Not that I'm aware of. (I don't have a Symphony option machine to test with to see if Symphony is different.)

    If I'm understanding you correctly -- just remove the effect, then start correcting again.

    not a solution thoigh

    sometimes i have worked let s say gain..ok, then gamma, then go to setup...i only want t bring the stuo to start point..i know that it is 0

    but not all the parameter i knpw their defaul value

    deleting the fx will wipe all not only the setup correction

    why?

    In the upper left corner of Symphony's Color Correction window, there is a drop-down menu with choices such as Src Segment, Src Clip Name, Master Clip, . . . , and, at the bottom of that menu, CC Effect. All of these choices except for CC Effect are relational options that will apply your correction to multiple clips at once. Because you are applying your correction to a track but not directly to a clip, the relational choices are not applicable. Select CC Effect, and you should be okay.

    On the other hand, you may want to consider applying a relational correction directly to a clip instead, because relational correction is a big part of the power of Symphony.

    Re: basic color correction

    something is not clear to me

    now i am applying the cc at clip directly

    i have the track i want to work at highlighetd

    some clips i can apply cc, all of a sudden a certain clip give me the error

    "only cc effect correction can be applied to filler"

     

    can t really understand why...i have done just the same to the 2 previous clip (both on different tracks though)

    Re: basic color correction

    I know you're trying to use the tools you have available, and nobody probably wants to spend more money if they don't have to, but I just purchased Baselight Edition, and it's pretty fantastic for color correcting within the timeline. Of particular note: it will automatically create edits at each event for you (when you put the correction on an upper layer), and even more importantly, the scopes properly adjust as you're moving the sliders. It's nearly impossible, I find, to use Avid's built-in tools, because the scopes don't change until you've released the controls (as you've discovered).

    i agree the edits that create automatically are really useful

    but the most useful is that the scopes don t change until you release..that is really bad

    it is a pity as apart of this seems quite powerfull tool

     

    what is baselight edition, another software for cc?

    is it a "plugin" that works still within media composer?

    Not in front of a system to double check, but ALT-click should reset a parameter to the default.
