Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video The Shadow/Highlights command, part of After Effects Guru: Color Grading Footage.
…Another adjustment that can be used in both an auto or a manual method…is the shadow highlight adjustment and this,…I must admit, is one of my favorites.…It's a quick way to lift the shadows and recover the…highlights without having to get too complex into channel selections or curves.…What I want to do here is just bring out our…subject a bit and you see it's a very subtle adjustment.…Let's start by adding a new adjustment layer, and I'll search for shadow.…There it is, shadow highlight.…By default, the auto amount did a pretty good job.…
And if using an auto amount, make sure you…apply that temporal smoothing so it analyzes the entire frame.…This did a nice job of just bringing our subject out a bit…more so he doesn't blend in to the dark shadows of the backdrop.…Looks pretty good.…On the other hand, perhaps you want to go…a little bit more manual, and in this particular…adjustment, if I add the shadow highlight effect…and just use the default values, it looks artificial.…We've gone too far.…
So what I want to do is uncheck auto amounts and open up to more options.…
