…The Active Secondary Color Correction is…the active, emphasizing one color over another.…And I want to show you two shots that would really benefit from this.…You could do this with an adjustment layer.…Or inside of Camera RAW.…Which you might have traditionally thought as only being useful for stills.…Let's start with a normal video layer here.…And this layer is fine.…Everything works.…But the subject is just not standing out as much as I'd like.…The goal…here is to draw your attention to the bright red lizard.…But the lush, green trees around him, are getting in the way.…
That's okay.…Using a Vibrance adjustment layer, I've got control.…Vibrance is going to be the non-skin tones.…So dragging that to the right, increases the intensity of the greens and the blues.…Dragging it to the left decreases it. And you…can tone that down.…So by balancing out the use of…the Saturation slider, and the Vibrance slider.…You can really finesse that.…And remember, you can actually use a mask here.…So if I want to have different values, that's pretty easy.…
