I just did this in premier:
Footage with 3 colors I wanted to leave.
Duplicate footage 3(amount of colors you want to leave) times and layer them
Leave color filter on each and turn off visibility/uncheck enable to see the specific layers that need a single color left and adjust em.
Enabled all layers and changed blend modes from top to bottom so i can clearly(or mostly) see the layer below it.
My topmost layer was changed to Overlay and the layer after that changed to Darker Color. and now I have only 3 colors showing and it's looking good....
Thank you for both of of your input. Jason, I will try that, sounds like a good plan, and Todd, I've already seen the video, but thank you so much.
However, what I'm still wondering is that...how do I keep the leave colour effect confined to only a certain area? Say...I have a video of 5 people lined up, all wearing red shirts. Let's say they're all holding yellow balloons. How do I go about leaving the shirt & balloon colours on the third person in line only, and discolour all the others?
Thank you again.
I'll leave it to others to answer this in the Premiere Pro context, but I prefer to do this kind of thing in After Effects, where motion tracking and rotoscoping tools make isolating objects much easier.
Ah, okay, thanks. The thing is, I'm only familiar with Premiere but I really wanna get into Aftereffects. The only problem is that I don't even have the software yet, perhaps I'll download I trial just for this project.
I'm not too great at Premiere either, but perhaps is there some kind of motion tracking tool?
In order to not clutter the Premiere Pro forum with After Effects guidance, please bring questions about how to do this in After Effects to the After Effects forum:
