Thread: Underwater white balance/colour correction in Vegas

  1. #1

    Default Underwater white balance/colour correction in Vegas

    Hi All,

    I'm new here and I have just posted a video which I created in the "User Videos" forum ... http://www.videoforums.co.uk/user-vi...ter-video.html

    I'm a noob Vegas user and I am trying to improve the colour of some videos that I recently took underwater, by removing the blue haze and adding red/orange back as much as possible. I am having trouble doing this though and I've followed numerous things on the Internet, on random forums etc and I've had no luck whatsoever. I'd appreciate any hints, tips, ideas, guides, whatever that could make it work for me. I've seen some great results but unfortunately I've been unable to replicate them.

    Many thanks

    Regards,
    Scott

    I took the liberty of capturing a section of your video to test my skills out.

    Not too shabby this 'un:

    That's amazing, I didn't think something that good would be possible!
    What do I need to do to be able to do this? I've tried using the white balance and the colour corrector tools but I can't get it anywhere near that good. I mean, I've got it to look better than normal, but not as it should.

    Capernwray 20 September 2011 - YouTube I've done some correction on this as it was videoed in UK so it was very green, I think it looks more realistic now (blue..) and the plane etc looks normal.

    Regards,

    Hi Grazie

    I've been trying but I'm still unable to get anywhere near as good result as you. Please let me know you did it.

    If anyone else has any ideas please let me know.

    Thanks

    No trade secrets. All the tools are out there, the proceses too, and the books and the tutorials and the DVDs too.

    I can only do what I can do. I've written much here over the years. Writing this up would take up too much time AND I'd get it wrong.

    The secret is..........
