Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting a single color with the Change Color effect, part of After Effects Guru: Color Grading Footage.
…While the Leave Color effect is useful to create black and light, you can…employ a similar technique to target one color in an image and manipulate it.…For this we use either the Change Color or the Change Two Color effect.…I typically find that the Change Color effect…is more effective as it offers finer controls.…Let's go after the red here in this signage.…I'll add an Adjustment Layer and type in…the word change in the Effects and Presets.…There it is, Change color.…
And what I want to do is select the red in this sign.…By viewing the Color Correction Mask, I can…get a good idea of what's being chosen.…And you will note that we can adjust this by controlling the…softness, as well as the overall tolerance setting.…Looks pretty good there.…And what I want to do now is take the Pen Tool to add a custom mask.…By clicking here around the tower, it makes it a bit easier to refine this.…
Let's pull that in.…There you go.…Alt or Option, lets you drag that one handle.…And what we need to do is close this out.…Like so.…
