I'm looking for some help... I just watched this great online tutorial video: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-speedgrade-cs6/adding-impact-to-your-f ootage-with-speedgrade-cs6/ However, my experience is NOT matching that of the video.
I think something is "set up" incorrectly in my program. My save "folders" are red, and not white. I'm not getting the icon for "inside/outside" the mask. Changes are NOT registering.
I'm nearly possitive it's operator error!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
go to mask tab > create desired mask > go back to Look panel > ADD Primary > apply some color correction > choose inside, outside (Icon)
If the look/mask folder names are red, this indicates that they are read-only. To save your own looks add another look tab by clicking on the plus sign and then browse to a folder where you have read/write access.
This was awesome! Thank you so much! I had TRIED all of that stuff! It didn't work... Patrick shared a "tip" of starting SpeedGrade with Administrator properties to "free up" everything... granted there's only one profile on this computer and it HAS admin priv's but... it worked! All the "red" folders were gone, and now everything seemed to work! I sure do appreciate the link though!
I tried that for TWO DAYS! I must be a moron... I tried things over and over and over! Nothing worked! Patrick shared a "admin" start up tip that cleared everything for me, and allowed the program to work properly! Thanks for the response. Much obliged!
When I do an overall grade, then create a mask, and then select outside, I loose my overall grade, and everything looks ungraded inside the mask.
Is it now necessary to add additional primaries in order to grade outside or inside a mask?
It used to be that our could do it all on one grading layer. Has that changed in SG6?
yes one Mask per Layerstack / Grading Layer (TL)
So if you want to do a vignette Over your Overall Grading
>add Another Primary
>Offset + Choose In-/Outside
Same when isolating Areas in the secondary:
>create a matte
>choose inside Mask
Hope that helps.
