Cannot get white-balance correction to work

Mar 30, 2013 3:55 PM

I have some diving video that needs white balance correction.  I am trying out the PE11 trial.


I've tried smart-fix as well as the 3-way correction tool.  I've used the dropper to select something that should be white, but it makes little to no difference.


Any ideas why ?

    Welcome to the forum.


    Is there any way that you could post a short excerpt from that footage, so that others could see it, and experiement with it?


    One of the issues with underwater footage, or photography without flash, is that the deeper one goes, the less complete the light specturm is - not just a color balance, or cast, but a diminished spectrum. That can create some issues when it come to CC (Color Correction).


    Good luck,
