Color warper still not working ver. 17.4.2

PostSat Nov 27, 2021 6:33 am

Okay, what will be the best way to color correct TWO pictures...

1) I need a spilt mode to see both pictures or I can't correct them!

2) I need the color warper and/or the qualifier to change the color, by using the spilt mode!

Tell me a temp solution until it is fixed... maybe v. 18 or 19...

What about trying all the other tools for color grading? Oh, and there is a split-mode.

You lost me here. What is a Spilt Mode? You mean a Split Mode?

Assuming you mean Split mode, you mean a "Split-Screen Mode"? You have that, if you grab a still and then wipe to the still.

If that isn't it, I'm befuddled. Honestly, I color correct two images by comparing them to each other and using scopes. I don't need to see both on the screen at the same time. Bear in mind I came from a time when we always popped back and forth and compared (say) a close-up to a full-screen still of the wide shot. I'd compare every medium shot and every close-up so that they all matched to the wide shot and then each other... then I'd play the whole scene and make adjustments if necessary. And then I'd move along to the next scene.

I only use Color Warper for very specific problems, not for everything, and not that often as a general rule.

Second that, it's a pretty specific tool. If you want the real thing, get 3D LUT Creator.

I use the color warper all the time, because now I finally can correct colors it wouldn't select before. But if I can't use it in split screen mode, then how should I be able to match them!

Is there a reason that wiping a still doesn't work for your needs? It also has the benefit of being bigger, since it's only one viewer screen.

That said, I'm curious if anyone knows if there's a way to move around the still you're wiping against without moving the other image? Sometimes I want to look at the same half of both images next to each other in the wipe, and it would be nice to do so in only one viewer.

Move the still.. is ref wipe in sizing.

Claus, my color warper works in split screen so you need to provide more details if we are to repo.

Didn't thought about the "wiping a still", since it is faster to just select the clips you want and then it shows in viewer from v. 17, where the color warper came. And it is very useful since you can see more clips at the same time. (the color warper is still working, but the qualifier is just not, so I think it easy could be fixed)

Please show it on a video, that you can get the qualifier to work in "split screen mode" - it works as a still in "image wipe mode".

And it is not that the "color warper" is not able to work in split screen... BUT the tool "qualifier" just isn't working, so I think it would be easy to get it to work, since it is so much easier to match colors in color warper, like skin tones or just change color on a dress.
