Thread: Black and White with spot colour

    Default Black and White with spot colour

    I have seen a black and white movie with certain objects in the frame picked out in colour. Can this be done in Vegas?

    let me know

    The effect in question is known as colour (or color) pass. I did a quick google search for "vegas color pass" which returned a lot of results.

    I did it in this movie at 3:21... I am not sure how to do it except with the color red, so if anyone could tell me how to do that I would appreciate it.

    But with the color red you do this:
    Color Corrector (Secondary)
    Desaturated All But Reds

    Step 1: Drop the Secondary Color Corrector filter on the clip/event to be modified.
    Step 2: Use the eyedropper/pipette tool to select the color to be kept/passed.
    Step 3: Check the Invert Mask checkbox in the Secondary Color Correction filter dialog box.
    Step 4: Set Saturation in the Secondary Color Correction filter to zero.


    Remove all color except the color to be passed with the Saturation slider. Set it fully to the left, or at zero. Use the "Show Mask" to convert the visible image to black & white, showing the mask only, making it easier to see what area of the image you are adjusting.

    Right - done that but is there a way that I can isolate all but the object of that colour - for example........

    My daughter is playing with a yellow aeroplane. As the wing goes into shadow, the colour disappears too because of the apparent colour change due to shade.

    The other problem is that any object with a hint of yellow for example, her hair, shows as a slight yellow tint.

    How can i widen the range of 'yellows' shown but not the yellow in the wooden floor or my daughters hair?

    Another challenge!

    Change one track to black & white, another with just the colOr you want. Then just add the more tracks for each color.

    track 1----b&W
    track 2----yellow key
    track 3----blue key
    track 4----green key


    so what you get is a layered effect. Just make sure all the tracks are in sync. Other wise it will apear blurry.

    Thanks for that but I don't understand how adding layers of different colOrs will isolate and object so only the colOr on the obect will show.

    For example, the little toy aeroplane is a canary yellow. There is a neighbours car across the road that is exactly the same colOr. How do I make the car b&w (with the rest of the footage), leaving only the plane in full and glorious colOr???

    Am I missing something here?
