Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Balancing the saturation and brightness of elements, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
We've now been to the long process of assembling our crowd, so the room is quite full.…I am going to move on and address some of the issues, like the color.…We can color grade the crowd for aesthetic reasons and also to make everything match much better.…Now, one thing that would be great would be to center the focus on the podium, and more…on the top left of the frame.…We're going to eventually pretend that there is a window on the left, and make this area brighter.…So, what we'd want to do is darken any part of the crowd that's more on the right in the…foreground let those fade into the background a bit.…
Before I start applying effects, however, I want to pre-compose some more.…We have a long list of crowd layers here.…What I can do is do two more pre-compositions to simplify this, and thereby be able to apply…effects on the pre-compositions as opposed to the individual crowd image sequences.…So, I am going to grab 2A through 2CTape just Shift-click those, and then go to layer > Pre-compose.…I will rename this in the tradition of the other pre-composition, 2Ato2CpreComp, click OK.…
