Need to White Balance, Color grade etc. One long clip?

PostFri Apr 16, 2021 1:14 am

Hello, I have some longer clips captured by walking through an apartment. The issue I have is that one room may have had incandescent lighting and the next had predominantly sunlight. So, the white balance goes from very warm to very cool. I can cut the clip up and apply WB to each resulting clip. Is there a different way that my be more flexible without creating a bunch of separate clips? Thanks

You can keyframe various adjustments. Might work better.

that's the solution. I really enjoy keyframing colour correction. It makes impossible shots with variable light situation possible.

There is a "behind the scenes" short out there with veteran colorist Steven J. Scott explaining his process for color-correcting the famous "one shot" movie BIRDMAN, and it's fascinating to see all the workarounds he had to use in order to make the film look seamless. Scott used Lustre on this project, but the basic principles of what he did apply to any color-correction system: Resolve, Baselight, Nucoda, Mistika, etc.
