View Full Version : Need help with color correction
2008 April 6th, 17:35
I shot my daughter's play with HV20 in cinema mode 24p. I used cineform to deinterlace it. Everything looks good except the color. I'm using Vegas 8 and have never used the color correction tool. Does anyone have any suggestions on the settings I should use or where I can get basic info that will help me.

BTW, Cineform is used to remove pulldown in PF24 streams, not to de-interlace. The de-interlacing is a byproduct of the pulldown removal.

Your videos load very nicely into Vimeo. The content loads quickly and there is no jerkiness to watching. What export settings are you using? I'm about to stop uploading to Vimeo in WMV because of playback problems.

sp8ce07, your reply is off topic. There are some minor bugs with WMV decoding on Vimeo, but there is no jerkiness involved. The reason his video was smooth and yours isn't, it's because he removed pulldown and uploaded a 24p video. Your videos are probably exported as 30p, and so you need 20% faster CPU to decode them. The problem is explained here:
If you need to comment on that, please reply there.

Eugenia, thanks for the link to your tutorial. I have perused your site for several months and want to thank you for your efforts to help everyone.
This is my first attempt. I have played with the color correction tool but this is the best I came up with. I only modified the middle white level by using the eye dropper on a white shirt.
Anyone have suggestions to get it better?
Using Vegas 8 as editor.

Give me a HIGH quality screenshot at 1440x1080 of the video (you can grab screenshots in PNG format with Vegas' preview window from the toolbar), and then I can help you further.

The screen shot is 1920 X 1080.
