Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding masks and mattes to adjustment layers, part of After Effects Guru: Color Grading Footage.
…In that last example, you saw the change color effect in action.…And I refined it by using a mask.…Let me show a few more strategies when it comes to masking,…and how you can use multiple masks to get really targeted results.…What I'd like to do here is really add emphasis to these alligators.…And you see that some selective grading has done just that.…Essentially, I have mattes and masks in play here.…The first choice is to do the…curves adjustment, and this is pretty straightforward.…
You've already learned how to use the curves adjustment.…And what I've done is just pulled down the contrast in those middle tones.…Next, I added an exposure adjustment, but applied a mask to it.…Let's delete that mask and start from scratch.…This pulled down the darkness around things.…And with the pen tool here, I'm going to turn on the RotoBezier…option, this makes it easy to click, and start to go around.…And as I pull here, you see how simple it is to get Bezier curves.…
It's very intelligent.…Here…we go.…And the Roto Bezier is a simple way to make a more curved and gentler selection.…
