    Color Replace Feature in PRE 9 - can't find it ? Deleted from PRE 8?

    shiffsportsmarketing Level 1

      I found this information in Adobe's help for Premiere Elements 8:


      Color Replace

      The Color Replace effect replaces all occurrences of a selected color with a new color, preserving any gray levels. Using this effect, you could change the color of an object in a clip by selecting it, and then adjusting the controls to create a different color.

      Replace a color

      1. Apply the effect.

      2. In the Tasks panel, select the effect and click the Edit Effects button. Then click the Setup button to the right of the effect name.

      3. In the Color Replace dialog box, select the color you want to replace by clicking a color in the Clip Sample area on the left (the pointer becomes an eyedropper), or by clicking the Target Color swatch and selecting a color in the Color Picker dialog box.

      4. Choose the replacement color by clicking the Replace Color swatch.

      5. Broaden or reduce the range of the color you’re replacing by dragging the Similarity slider.

      6. Select the Solid Colors property to replace the specified color without preserving any gray levels, and click OK.

      7. Click Done




      HOWEVER - in Premiere Elements 9 - when you click the Edit Effects button there IS NOT "SETUP BUTTON" to the right of the effect name....??? Thus, there is no Color Replace dialog box, etc...... The only thing to the right of the Image Control effect name is the little stopwatch icon...


      Am I missing something, or did something change in this version??


      Thanks for your help!
