    From Colour to Black & White

    An easy way to desaturate a clip as it plays.
    The same idea can be applied to go from desaturated to full colour.
    This is only one of many possible ways to do this.


    The playback screen can be maximised by using the "Full-screen" button in the control bar.

    Re: From Colour to Black & White

    Hi Douglas,

    Is it me, or can I not find the option "BCC color & blurs" in my effect pallette?

    I am using Media Composer...

    Thanks for all you are doing!

    You need to install the BCC AVX from the Boris installer DVD that is included in your Software bundle.

    But you don't need the BCC effect to De-Saturate.  You can apply a Color Effect and change the Saturation over time with Keyframes, or even Color Correction (if you have a version of MC without Keyframable Color Correction you can do an Add Edit and Dissolve between the clips) 

    Using Color Effect or Color Correction would save you from having to Render as they are Real-Time effects.  BCC fx require rendering.
