Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying enhancements, part of After Effects Guru: Color Grading Footage.
…Let's finish this out with a couple of quick polishing adjustments just…to add a little bit of finesse as we wrap up this shot.…One thing I like to do, is add an Adjustment Layer with a blur.…I'll typically use the fast blur.…And place that into a soft light mode.…The benefit of this is, it just creates a little bit of blooming on the highlights.…Additionally, you can drop the opacity of that…layer to split the difference between the two states.…Let's add a solid layer as well.…And sample one of the dark shadows in this image.…
By adding a shape to that layer, it's very easy to control the vignette.…What I'll do here is I'll add a fairly large feather, and try…modes like Soft Light or Multiply and lower the opacity to taste.…It doesn't take much on that vignette.…But a very small value just to darken the edges…and guide the eye towards the center is a good call.…Let's press the Return key and name that layer as well.…And remember, you can use Return or Enter to edit the name of a layer.…
Alright, let's maximize that for a second.…
