Thread: White too bright for my movie.

  1. #1

    Default White too bright for my movie.

    I'm currently filming a movie in the dead of summer.
    I'm trying to clean up my video some, and here is my problem I have an actor that is wearing a white shirt. The shirt has a white glow like he is holy above his shoulders.

    I'm using adobe premiere 6.5.
    I have no previous experience using premiere. Currently all I've done with it is cut the footage.

    Any pointers would be much appreciated. If anyone is interested in doing this in the Austin area, I can add you to credits as a Video Specialist or something like that.

    Its hard to sort out somthing in post production, its easier to cure the problem when shooting. Filters on the lens will stop the bright white on anything that you have yet to shoot. But this won't cure the hours of footage you already have,
    I use pro, so don't know if 6.5 is the same, but I can only suggest playing around with any colour correction and try to turn the brightness down, problem is this will reduce the whole picture and not just the holy white shirt on the screen.
    Sorry can't be of more help, others may know more about 6.5 than I do, but I would really recommend you get filters for your lens

    I figure that would be the issue. I'm currently using a polarizer, any suggestion on the lense?

    a polarizing filter is generally used for bright sunny conditions and is probably the best for your white shirt, you can also use a neutral density which will reduce overall brightness but you will lose colour.
    What are shooting on? camera and lens
    (Probably should continue about the shooting in the "Camcorder Reviews, Problems and Shooting" section)

    Canon ZR300 good little camera for beginner, but I've already grown to experimental for it. Has really good quality for the cost.

    The lense is standard polarizer, dont have it infront of me.
    Cost around 20 bucks.
