I apologize if this question is simplistic in nature but I am still an amateur editor trying to fix some of the videos I have done.
As a scuba diver, I am constantly white balancing underwater. However, occassionaly, I while white balance where my subject has the correct color but the background is more redish instead of the nice deep blue sea. What is the easiest way to color correct the background of a video shot without affecting the frontground subject?
I imagine levels is a great tool but when I attempted to play around with the numerous settings, I kept on affecting the subject as well as the background. What is the easiest way to correct the background? Thanks.
Check out the Three Way Color Corrector; it has a Secondary CC option that will let you mask the color correction to specific chroma or luminance values within the clip. That essentially lets you isolate the color correction, so it only changes the portions of the image you want.
Thank you for the responses. This is extremely helpful. I was trying to use the quick color correction fix but I think this is going to do the job for me.
