    Color correction in very long distance zoom-in

    BITESBITER Level 1

      Hi,

       

      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?!

       

      Thanks! David
