Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Affecting selected regions, part of Premiere Pro and After Effects: Enhancing Production Value.
…So far, we've been using Solids, Resimple Gradient Washes, from…Point A to Point B, to colorize the entire clip underneath.…But sometimes, you want to correct just a portion of a shot underneath.…In that case, you might want to use Masking.…And I prefer to do my masking inside After Effects because it's very powerful.…So I'm going to open up a new sequence here.…Now here we have a nice scene of horses with mountains behind them.…Frankly for my taste, this scene could have a lot more visual pop to it.…
This shot was originally taken in Ireland, and I might want the green to really…pop to sell the green of Ireland, as well as the nice coats of the horses.…And I want my attention to be on the horses.…Not on the sky behind, so I don't…want to increase the saturation for the entire shot,…just for the foreground mountains and the horses,…and then fade out to a relatively untouched skyline.…To do that, I'll select my Clip, right-click on it, and say…Replace with After Effects Composition, and…there it opens up inside After Effects.…
