I made a shot with the Canon XF305 that's basically a long distance zoom-in from one village to an other (around 1km distance clips-duration=1 minute).
The problem that occurs (because it was taken in the hills with a cloudy sky), that some parts where sunny and other parts with cloud shadow showing color errors.
I made a manual white balance (in the camera before) and the blacks and whites are ok, but I have some problems with mid-red and mid-blue is some parts of the zoom.
What is the best way to color correct something like this. I was thinking about using the scissors tool and separating some part of the clip and then making
some kind of transition between the parts of the clip.
So pro's how is this normally done?!
You could try some keyframes on your corrections.
In Speedgrade or Da Vinci Resolve...a colorist would create transitions in the video stream.
Razor cuts will create jumps in the grade... so not advisable.
That sounds like a good strategy and it is what I would do. It's often easier to correct each section, then use cross dissolves or opacity keyframes to blend sections together rather than keframing the color/brightness. This technique works really well with camera pans as well. Good luck!
