I've noticed the same issues and am using the same solution.
Try the RGB color corrector.
Lower the Gamma then push the Gain.
The last problem I found with the Three Way Color Corrector is related to just having the effect active even when no adjustments to the Three Way Color Corrector are made. The image gets a greenish tint to it and the problem is also seen in the RGB parade monitor as a slight decrease in blues and reds.
...and the same problem with Color Balance, Change to Color, Brightness & Contrast, etc.
And what really hurts is that this happens even with some of the most important plugins: Colorista II/MBLooks and Twixtor. Just having the effect/plugin activ with no adjustment the image gets a very strange greenish tint. Steve Hoeg pointed out the problem: "converting from YUV Rec. 709 of the source files to YUV Rec. 601 as these particular effects required".
Unfortunately the bug has been fixed only for Fast Color Corrector, RGB Curves and a few others, nothing more.
More details on this issue can be found at the following links:
I tried the RGB color corrector but had a problem with it.
The effect wouldn't make any changes to the video and when I moved the playhead it would not go to the next frame until I disabled the effect. When I hit play the image would stay frozen on one frame but I would still get audio and the playhead would move. When I hit stop it would still stay frozen on the same frame.
Anyone else have this issue?
Hewlet, Did you have problems with the input and output levels on the Three Way Color Corrector too or just with it giving the image a greenish tint?
No, I don't have problems with the input/output levels.
The problem is only with this damn greenish tint when I use some tools/effects/plugins to make a color correction. It's really very painful when you try to make a good/decent/professional color correction with this greenish tint that appears in the preview, because it always gives you the feeling that you have to reduce the green shadows curves when in fact it's not necessary.
Anyway, I am surprised that the Adobe team has been able to fix this bug for some of the tools/effects, but not for the rest and for the most important plugins: Colorista II/MBLooks and Twixtor. We have noted that any tool/plugin that doesn't have the "YUV" sign gives problems.
